We provide support, training, activities, respite, and safe spaces where families can get the help they need in a non-judgemental environment and the children can enjoy the childhood they deserve. “Little Miracles supported around 40,000 people last year. We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, and we simply could not be the charity we are without the amazing support of companies like Fraser Dawbarns.“We look forward to working closely together and seeing the difference their support makes to local families of children with additional needs, disabilities, and life-limiting conditions.”
