Springboard have developed a 10 point plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand that this is a challenging time for all, however we remain committed to supporting those most vulnerable and ensuring we are all able to come through these unprecedented times with positivity, hope and care!
We have been asked by many if we are able to work with families who have a child with disability, and who are not members or on our waiting list. The answer is YES! Where you see an *, please simply get in touch and we will walk you through how we can provide support during this time.
