4us2 is a charitable company limited by guarantee. It is governed by a Board of Trustees, the majority of whom are parents /carers of disabled children or young people. This makes us unique and gives us a special role: they don’t just represent parents, carers and families of disabled children: they are parents / carers of disabled children and young people. 4us2 provides advice, services, signposting and support. 4us2 listens, 4us2 understands, and 4us2 takes action.
“Disabled children and young people & and their families making choices, creating and sustaining the change they want to see, having ambition and following their dreams.”
Their mission is to improve the lives of disabled children, young people and their families across East Kent, using their specialist knowledge and experience as parents, carers and service users.
The Objectives of 4us2 as specified in the charity’s Memorandum of Association (dated 30th July 2010) are as follows:
The relief of poverty and social exclusion experienced by families with disabled children and young people living in East Kent through:
i The provision of specialist advice and support services for parents/carers of disabled children and young people.
ii The provision of leisure and recreational services for disabled children and young people, and their families.
iii The provision of other services as identified by disabled children, young people and their families.
These objectives are deliberately broad so that they can respond to the needs and requests of families, and commissioners, as they arise, while remaining true to the charitable purposes.
