Members Family Day Out to W5
We had a lovely family day out to W5 At Odyssey. We kicked off the day with a private room where members were able to catch up with one another - everyone brought a packed lunch! A tour of W5 followed with lots of fun for all the family. A massive thank you to all of the W5 staff who helped make the day stress free and inclusive for all of our members!

Introducing another ‘First’ to Northern Ireland!
'Bugzi' Loan Scheme now available in Northern Ireland!
We are delighted to be confirmed as N.I partner for national charity Meru, to introduce the amazing ‘Bugzi’ to families here.
Bugzi is a powered mobility chair for infants from about 18 months old through to a maximum weight of 25kg. Exploring surroundings and learning about spatial awareness and cause and effect are essential parts of early development. Bugzi allows young children with mobility difficulties to do exactly that!
A clinic is scheduled for March and any questions or enquiries about Bugzis in NI can now be directed to the local Mae Murray Foundation team via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0300 600 1166
We’ve done it!
We have created N.I.'s first Inclusive Beach!!!!!
Sincere thanks to Wooden Spoon Charity for over £18K of funding to help make our first Inclusive Beach a reality and of course special thanks to the local committee of Wooden Spoon who recognised the need for this project and supported the vision wholeheartedly every step of the way!
Thanks also to Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council for welcoming this initiative and who will now deliver the project in partnership with Mae Murray Foundation.
