Oak Foundation

Holiday Scheme

The aim of this Charity is to improve the quality for families who have children and young adults with disabilities living in the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

The Charity was originally set up by Carers to campaign for more appropriate and responsive services for children with disabilities in the Borough. We still aim to influence statutory service providers to improve their services to ethnic minority children, but we have also built the capacity within our own organisation to provide four unique and innovative support projects.

What can children expect from us?

A family atmosphere with staff members who are friendly, approachable, energetic and fun! We are child-centred and look at the individual needs of each child. We ask children what they want to do with their time and aim to accommodate their suggestions.

What can parents expect from us?

We are managed by Carers and employ staff who have an understanding of disability-related issues. Those in charge have similar circumstances to those receiving services and are sensitive to what struggling families may be going through. We develop all our services as a direct response to what Carers tell us they need.
