Welcome to Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity

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

Welcome to Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity. We are dedicated to supporting families with children under 5 years old with cerebral palsy and other motor learning impairments. 

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.

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
