The Chamwell Centre Charity

Inclusion statement

The Chamwell Centre’s vision is to enhance the well-being of those with disability, how they feel, how they function on a personal and social level, and how they feel about their lives as a whole.
We have a state-of-the-art building, which is now coming alive with all the wonderful people who are enjoying being part of this groundbreaking project. Chamwell’s challenge now is to ensure that it meets the needs of The Milestone School, SAND Academy and all those with complex additional needs in the County of Gloucestershire.
This is their building. The generous benefactors who made it possible, made their donations so that everyone, no matter what their degree of difficulty, could access sports, leisure, therapies, and play in a spirit of friendship and equality.
Our launch has been shakier than we would have hoped, because of the Covid pandemic but despite this, great strides have been made and we plan to forge ahead with plans for more adapted sports and therapies, more social opportunities, youth groups, clubs, music, dance, theatre and many more activities, always being guided by the wishes of the Chamwell users themselves.
Our short breaks programme is just beginning but will be developed over the coming months to offer exciting opportunities for children and young people to access all the exciting activities which Chamwell can offer, whilst being cared for by our staff.
We shall be building on our current therapy staff to increase our ability to offer professional supervision for therapies and adapted sports.
The possibilities for Chamwell are endless. We are in uncharted territory because there are no other Centres like Chamwell – we are the pioneers of a new concept in caring and meeting the needs of all those with complex additional needs in our community.
By means of our research, our focus groups, our wide network of contacts and professionals, we plan to develop the Chamwell Centre so that it truly reflects and fulfils the needs of the community which it serves.
