Handicapped Children’s Action Group

Handicapped Children’s Action Group is a registered charity working to provide specialist equipment for children with disabilities, learning difficulties and other special needs. The children, from all areas of the UK are unable to obtain this equipment from the NHS and because of the cost it is usually unaffordable by the families.

Handicapped Children’s Action Group was first established in 1988 as a result of a previous chairman trustee’s involvement with fundraising for a child close to his heart. It was made clear during this fundraising just how difficult it was to obtain desperately needed equipment for seriously ill children and especially so, if the child was from a family with very little income. As a result of that insight into the difficulties, a number of people involved in that fundraising event formed a group which went on to raise funds for disabled children from low income families. The Handicapped Children’s Action Group registered as a charity in 1992.
