Video showcases difference grant has made to Cheshire charity

A Cheshire charity that supports children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) has made a special video to showcase the difference a Steve Morgan Foundation grant has made to families.

Ruby’s Fund was incorporated in 2008 and officially opened the doors of its Congleton centre in 2013 after five years of fundraising.

The charity provides support for families of children with SEND and supports the whole family and not just the individual child.

They have a fully accessible sensory centre, siblings room, therapy room, sensory garden and community café, and also provide outreach services with an accessible mobile sensory bus.

Their aim is to provide help to families of SEND children by providing early intervention to prevent crisis further down the line and reducing the need for more expensive statutory health and care services if possible.

They focus on the positives for families and work with them to look at what children with SEND can do, not what they can’t.

In the 2021 they were awarded £78,428 by the Steve Morgan Foundation to cover the salary of family support worker Steph Garner over three years.

Steph is the face of a new video to highlight the work of the charity and the impact of the funding.

Helen Davies of Ruby’s Fund, explained: “The video brings to life the work of the charity and shows the difference that the Steve Morgan Foundation has made. We’re very grateful of the support.”

The charity works with families at an increased risk of relationship breakdown; social isolation;  mental wellbeing issues; problems experienced by siblings; and financial difficulties.
