Gympanzees

Brief Description of Organisation

Our mission at Gympanzees is to enable every child and young person with a disability to access regular play, exercise and friendship, to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing, and to take their families out of isolation.

Full Description of Organisation

We support families with access to specialist equipment via our free specialist equipment lending library, holiday Pop-Up facilities and vital support systems. We plan to open a purpose-built inclusive regional facility designed to meet the play, exercise and social needs of our families in Bristol in 2023.

Why We Help

There are 66,000 young people with disabilities within an hour of Bristol and over 1.1 million in the UK. 77% of children with disabilities cannot access regular leisure facilities so can’t play, exercise or socialise in the same ways as their peers.

This not only affects them, but leaves whole families in isolation, with 72% of parents suffering mental health issues as a result.

We want to make sure children and young people with disabilities are given equal opportunities to play and exercise to aid their physical and mental development, ensuring that they can meet their potential.
