Guildford-based Challengers, a children’s charity dedicated to providing exciting and challenging play and leisure opportunities for disabled children and young people, has made a video which gives an insight into what life is really like with a disabled child or relative.

In the film you will hear straight from the families just how massive the impact of Challengers is on their lives.

Sarah Benton, a Challengers parent, said: “It’s not just a play scheme, it’s not just a pre-school, it’s a life for your child that they maybe wouldn’t otherwise get.”

Challengers provides vital play and leisure for disabled children and young people aged two to 25 across Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire and currently support more than 1,300 families.

Challengers says that it is difficult to understand life with a disabled child, and the impact that it has on the entire family.

Through interviews with parents, the film gives an understanding of what life is really like for them, and discusses the difference that attending Challengers has made to their children, their family and themselves.

This film has been made possible through the support of Crossform Media and the COINS Foundation.

Challengers has had a long-standing relationship with the COINS Foundation and its founder and chairman, Larry Sullivan, and thanks it for its support, and for making this video without cost to Challengers.
