Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity are planning to recommence sessions at our Centre in Cuckfield in September.  These sessions will be conducted following strict Government Covid19 Guidelines. We are currently offering virtual sessions to our families via zoom and will continue to do so for the immediate future.  Families will be given the option to continue with virtual sessions from September if they wish to do so.  To find out more about our current service provision click here.

Supporting under 5s with cerebral palsy and other motor learning impairments realise their full potential

Welcome to Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity. Our Charity was created to give very special children a place where they can learn and thrive in a warm, supportive setting that understands their unique journey.

Through our early intervention service and support network, we work alongside our families to give their very young children the best possible start in life – so that they can realise their full potential.

We receive no statutory funding and rely entirely on the community to raise our funds.  Your support is extremely important to us and we are grateful to each and every one of our supporters.

Find out more about the services we offer here, including those for parents, our long history, or read the stories of some of our remarkable young children.  There are many ways you can get involved - community, corporate involvement, volunteering and challenge events.
