Charity of the Month: The Snappy Trust

Each month we are going to promote a York-based charity with the aim to raise awareness and support them. This February we are promoting The Snappy Trust (Special Needs Activities and Play Provision for York). Snappy offers playtime and recreation for children and young people with disabilities.

With several play and activity sessions a week for people with disabilities aged 5-25, Snappy is an incredibly noble cause which is dedicated to empowering children and young people with disabilities. Their aim is to make children and young people feel safe, valued and happy by raising awareness about the importance of inclusion, acceptance and empowerment in disability.
