Shabaton L'Menucha 

Shabaton L'menucha is a UK based charity supporting the lives of children and young adults with physical, emotional and learning disabilities and their families. It is an incredible organization geared to children and adults with moderate to severe disabilities. Our aim is to give the disabled participants better chances in life. We do this by running regular weekend retreats for the beneficiaries several times a year, as well as local events such as concerts, sports and activity sessions, meanwhile their families take this rare opportunity for vital respite and relaxation

 

The disabled participants go through very challenging lives, many of them suffer with chronic pain and ongoing difficulties such as Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional issues and autism. Shabaton lmenucha provides out of school activities, recreational events and residential trips including summer and winter sleep-away camps that’s besides the regular weekends mentioned above where the disabled people can experience joy and happiness. Shabaton lmenucha is staffed by an incredibly devoted and willing team of energetic and caring volunteers and through shared experiences both are enriched, the special activities, trained professionals, gourmet food are all elements that make up the fantastic and unique weekends. The parents also desperately need respite and support in their challenging caring roles. We aim to provide essential support not only to the special need child of each family but also to the siblings whose anxiety, loneliness and confusion can be extremely overwhelming and sometimes overlooked. Our philosophy is that the most effective way to help a disabled child is to improve things for the whole family.

Our mission is to ensure that no such child or adult anywhere in the UK has to suffer without us.
