Full of Life was founded in 1994 by parents who were dissatisfied with the lack of information and support that they needed to raise a child with additional needs. Parents came together to establish a single organisation that empowered and supported parents on their lifelong journey of caring. Full of Life continues to grow and now supports over 500 families who live in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
We are a free service that aims to support all families, no matter their child’s disability, needs, culture, race or family set up; we are here.
To be a positive force in supporting and empowering parent carers
We believe that parents are the experts in the care of their children. We aim to empower parents by ensuring they know their rights and the rights of their child. There can be no better advocate than a parent and we will be by their side all the way, helping them to ensure their child receives the best possible support and care.
To work honestly and with full transparency
We offer independent advice and support and believe in honest working relationships with parents and families. We want to continue to be a service that can be relied upon and believe the foundation of this is working openly with parents to build a relationship of mutual respect and trust.
To help drive positive changes locally for families in Kensington and Chelsea
The families we support are at the centre of everything we do and we believe that together we can initiate positive change for children and adults with additional needs in Kensington and Chelsea. We listen to what local families are telling us and are not afraid to challenge for change.
To provide services for young people that meet the high standards of care that Full of Life advocate for and that parents expect for their children
We provide high quality services for young people with complex additional needs. By looking at each young person holistically, we aim to help them grow and achieve their goals whilst meeting their needs and allowing them to explore their interests.
