Friends

A website to help disabled children and their families.

What we do

We set up Freddie's Friends in 2008 in memory of our lovely son. In the years since, with the help of our wonderful fundraisers, donors and sponsors, Freddie's have been able to provide specialist equipment, support and respite for disabled children and their families.


  • Califer

    Calcifer is a young boy who has a brain injury, visual impairment, global development delay and learning disability. Calcifer loves throwing himself around and his mum wanted to set up a small soft play area in the front room. With your continue support we funded various soft play/padded equipment to keep him safe, enjoy Calcifer x

    Tino has Down Syndrome and Hirschsprungs Disease. We have made a financial contribution towards a Barnardos Sensory Integration Therapy to help Tino with his language, motor and sensory development x
