Funded by Cornwall Council, Action for Children’s SPACE gives disabled children and young people across Cornwall exciting new activities to try, whilst providing families with an all-important short break. The services also run youth groups for disabled young people in St.Blazey, Hayle and Bodmin.

Young person’s practitioner at Action for Children, Hannah Prior, said: “What a fantastic night! Our young people had been planning and looking forward to the event for months and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

“Supporting disabled young people to have a fun at events like this, helps them feel empowered and builds their confidence as part of a safe and happy childhood. A huge thank you to all the young people, parents and staff who made the evening such a glittering success!”
