Who are we?
SNAP – Special Needs Active Parents is registered in the Rep. of Ireland as a charity (number CHY 16356) and are solely a voluntary organisation.
Special Needs Active Parents was initially set up after a group of parents enquired about establishing swimming lessons for children with Special Needs back in June 04. These parents got to know each other at different early intervention sessions (i.e. Physiotherapy, Feeding Clinics etc.) held at Early Intervention Services, HSE/NE. Mounthamillton House, Carrick Road, Dundalk. After consultation with Aura at the local swimming pool, weekly sessions were organised on Friday mornings.
Funding for the twenty six week sessions was provided by the North Eastern Health Board to whom we are grateful and are hoping to work closer with them in the future.
It was felt at the time that this success needed to be built upon and the group started meeting more regularly, exploring new ideas and potential fundraising events for finance. It was also crucially important for the group that relationships were built between the various service providers and Snap to help create collaborative strategies for improving services and opportunities for our children. The group has been successful in attracting more and more members and a more secure foundation was needed to help develop the group.
