Dream The Change, CIC

The organisation Dream the Change, CIC is established to bridge the gap between families of national, ethnic, linguistic & cultural minorities. They cater to children with special educational needs and disabilities and service providers in the Essex area (Colchester, Wivenhoe).

The extracurricular centres for children with SEND are adapted to meet their needs and also function as a respite for families. The aim is to support each child to access activities and venues alongside both disabled and mainstream peers.

The organisation has recreational opportunities in the local area for children with special needs out of school hours and half term. An allocated play centre will also be opening to offer children with SEND and their families a place to play away from home and meet other families.

The group also aims to promote the principles of inclusion by ensuring that diversity of children of all abilities, ethnic backgrounds and ages is respected and valued.

The group aims to provide informational resources to families, sign post parents and carers to available services and ensure families who have family member with SEND have equal access to culturally and linguistically appropriate information, resources and services.
