Joining in Gaining Support Awareness and Wellbeing
JIGSAW Thornbury was founded in March 2013. We support families who have children who are 0-25 years and have any additional needs or disability. This can be anything from learning needs such as dyslexia to complex disabilities or medical problems. Many children who come have no diagnosis. Our staff and volunteers are passionate about supporting families to help them get the support they need.
SEN-sory lending library and café
Our SEN-sory lending library and café has around 300 specialist items for families to borrow. We have Special Educational Needs (SEN) equipment and resources, developmental toys & sensory items. We even have toys for siblings to borrow. We are always looking to expand our library and welcome donations or recommendations from families.
our drop in support group
Our weekly support group gives parents the opportunity to drop in and share their concerns in a safe and understanding environment. The session provides a fun and relaxed play environment for the children and their families to attend. We have items from the Lending Library available and volunteers on hand to play with the children. This gives parents and carers the chance to chat and give and receive the support they need.
