Who We Support

 

The Corfe Mullen Carnival is pleased to be able to support the following Charities and Community Organisations.

Heartbeat House – Home from home, safe haven for the cardiac relatives to stay in which is only a 3 minute walk to the cardiac wards.

We fund pioneering projects that support cardiac patients nationally. These include our 3d Heart project for babies and children, our psychological cardiac youth worker who works with 11-25 year olds and our Lead Failure Heart nurse.

To make a difference for young people leading troubled lives whether these be emotional or physical challenges.  

The aim of the team is to enable families of children with physical and/or learning disabilities to cope day to day in the knowledge that their child is safe, supported, and cared for. The Children’s Team provides a range of services supporting children and young people, plus their families, in Dorset. The team aims to enable families that have children with physical and/or learning disabilities to cope day to day in the knowledge that their child is safe, supported and cared for.

Opportunities are also given to siblings to attend play sessions with their brother or sister while parents and guardians can benefit from various information and support services.

The team offer short breaks during the weekend and overnight, provide practical support in the home and out in the local community, plus holiday, weekend and after school activities to ensure those young people with disabilities live life to the full. The team also provide day care for young people transitioning to an adult.

We want to ensure all the children we support at Diverse Abilities have an enjoyable childhood while helping families cope with the pressures, they face caring for a child with lifetime disabilities.
