Putting a smile on the faces of families
Welcome to Ruby’s
Ruby’s is an award winning charity supporting children and young people aged 0-18 years old with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families and carers in Cheshire East. We provide high-quality facilities onsite at our centre in Congleton and outreach sessions at partner venues and onboard our mobile sensory bus.We offer person-centred support, by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, who are equipped with a wide range of knowledge, expertise and lived experience. We offer coordinated support and action to improve the quality of life and wellbeing to individuals and groups in Cheshire East with some of the most vulnerable and complex needs.
Ruby’s was founded in 2009 by Alison Parr when she identified a gap is support for children with SEND and their families after her daughter Ruby was born and diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder. In 2013 Ruby’s became a charity and company limited by guarantee. In 2014 we proudly opened the doors to our Congleton centre. The facilities at the centre include community cafe which is open to everybody, a sensory room with hoist, soft play frame, sensory garden and changing room with hoist.
