This page is for professionals to find out how Ruby’s Fund can support the children and families you work with. It is our aim to support our families to thrive.

We support SEND children, their parent carers and siblings with a variety of projects under the collective title of Thriving Families. Please have a look at our website for information.

Whilst our sensory centre and café is located in Congleton we provide outreach services across the whole of Cheshire East.

If you feel a family would benefit from the support we can offer please ask them to self refer at https://thriving-families.co.uk/help or contact helen@rubysfund.co.uk

The overall aim of Ruby’s Fund’s Thriving Families services is to provide early help for families of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), to ensure they stay well and avoid reaching crisis point.  The range of services are outlined below – we provide help for the whole family unit, ranging from support for SEND children (pre diagnosis, pan-disability, early years and beyond), parent carers (of all gender) and siblings.  Some of our most popular services are short breaks for children with SEND (0-8), SEND play sessions, parent carer peer support groups, counselling, free massages and complementary therapies and siblings wellbeing and social groups.
