Families in Fenland will be getting an extra hand from a new charity which has been formed.
Little Miracles Fenland is providing support for the families of children with additional needs, disabilities and terminal conditions.
The charity has been formed out of the stay and play support group which was run by family workers from Cambridge County Council.
After forming just a few months ago, there are now 170 families on the books for the group, which is connected to a Peterborough charity.
Fenland group chairman Emelie Northrop is delighted with the support so far.
She said: “We aim to support the whole family and subsequently the parents as well.
“It is a place where no-one is going to judge you whatever your child does. It is a very inclusive group.
“This is a service which is important for Fenland.
“Our first support group meeting was held on December 9 and we had quite a few parents come along, but it has just grown and grown from there.”
The committee, which is made up of parents, is looking at creating a stay and play group at half-term.
Mrs Northrop said: “As it is a parent-led committee they can have a say on the activities.”
The next meeting will be held on January 29 when Core Assets will be taking parents through the replacement for child statements.
