Breaking Barriers (NW)

All year

Breaking Barriers aims to support Disabled children and young people (aged 0-25) and adults with Autism (aged 18+) and their families to challenge and remove barriers to inclusion. BBNW have a strong strategic presence in Bolton and act as parent reps on the Disability housing sub group, the Post 16 transition guide task group, BDSA (Bolton Disability Sports Association), ETAG (Equality Target Action Group), Bolton ASC Forum and the Bolton Together Consortium. We work closely with other organisations across the borough and widely share information and good practice. We believe that all parents and carers of Disabled children and young people who so wish should have a voice that is heard and that the way forward for our families is to be included and consulted in decision making processes that directly affect us. We provide support with a listening ear and signpost to local services where appropriate.

BBNW hosts monthly parent groups (GUG), Under 5's stay and play clubs and an adults with Autism social group (ABAG). We offer bespoke training courses, raise awareness and promote inclusion and acceptance. Breaking Barriers believes in equality of opportunity for all sectors of the community.
