Yorkshire Coast Families is a small, independent parent led charity (Registered Charity 1167417) that supports families with children and young people who have Special Educational Needs, Disabilities and impairments within the geographical borders of Scarborough Borough Council, including Scarborough, Whitby and Filey and the villages in between.

Our current main activities are running family events which allow our families to access fun activities as a group. These have included trips to East Barnby Outdoor Center, Energi Trampoline Park in York, Beach Chalet Days, Sewerby Hall at Bridlington and picnics at Dalby Forest. These trips allow our members to meet and support other families, share the stress of a day out with children and access activities they may otherwise avoid due to the potential for disaster that days out may have on families with children with SEND.

Sometimes being a parent can be difficult – parents can feel exhausted and overwhelmed by everyday family life and additional stresses such as post-natal depression, illness, disability, separation, isolation or multiple births can make family life even more difficult. If there are no close family members or friends to turn to for help and encouragement it can be even tougher.
