Do you have a disabled child and live in Brighton & Hove?
Do you find it difficult to access mainstream activities because of your child's special needs?
Would you like to meet with other parents in the same position?
Then Pebbles could be what you are looking for...

PLEASE NOTE: Our activities are for the whole family. We are not a childcare provider.
- Brighton Pebbles is a not for profit group run by parent carers and we welcome children with any disability. However, we especially want to include children who find it difficult to access mainstream activities, for instance those with severe learning disabilities, severe autism and challenging behaviour.
- We know how difficult and lonely it can be to be excluded from the sort of everyday activities that most families take for granted. Siblings of any age are welcome to attend too.
- Pebbles aims to offer a place for parents to feel supported and understood and a place for all of our children to play and have fun.
