We are delighted to welcome PlayWise as Sutton United's Charity of the Season for 2021-22.
Based at Sutton Central Library, PlayWise Learning CIC (Community Interest Company) was launched in April 2019 to offer parents and carers of young disabled children up to the age of 8, and the professionals that support them, a wider range of services to help reduce the impact of disability and SEND(Special Educational Needs & Disability) and support families on their journey. PlayWise offers new, innovative and bespoke interventions for families either at home, at community hub, or in their learning setting.
An evening was recently held at Sutton United to celebrate the appointment of CEO Pam Fry (below, right, with fellow director Yvonne Charalambous), as an MBE for services to disabled children, and the work that PlayWise does in Sutton. They unveiled the PlayWise Wall of Support to showcase businesses that have supported the children and families, and any business that would like to sponsor or donate can contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org
