Beams was established as a charity in 1996 by a group of parents who believed that they could deliver better support for their disabled child by working together than they were currently getting through the local authority. They became directly accountable to the parents, carers and young people who accessed their services.

Twenty years on the charity has grown due to demand and now offers 4 key services to at least 350 parents and children at any one time. We need to generate £1.4 million through charitable donations in order to continue offering these services to some of the most vulnerable in society today.

Break Your Limit
August 27,2020

Now that lockdown seems to be coming to an end it’s time to get moving, get fitter, feel better and ready for the future ahead. Break your Limit is a virtual challenge where you can run, walk, cycle, skip or bake cakes all in support of our children, some of whom may never be able to do these things. Your support will enable our children to go swimming at a private pool as we cannot use the local leisure centre or have a fun day trip out. Push yourself to break through the barrier and all for a good cause.

We have even teamed up with STRAVA to monitor and share your progress with your friends, sponsors, and us.
