Hop, Skip and Jump - Conference speakers

Hop Skip and Jump was established in 1982 to provide immediate and flexible respite care to children and young adults across the South West. In the thirty years since the launch of our first centre in Cheltenham, we have gone on to launch two further centres in Bristol and Swindon, with new centres in Horsham and Cardiff scheduled for the near future.

Hop Skip and Jump provide support for children with any additional need, from complex physical conditions to special educational needs and behavioural problems. HS&J offer thousands of placements every year; care and support for children with help and advice for their families. Through targeted therapy sessions - after school care, weekend respite, teens and twenties clubs - Hop Skip and Jump provide valuable support to our community.

Care in the High Street aims to make respite care easily accessible to all. With centres across the country, Care in the High Street will help support families when they need it most. These units will offer parents the opportunity to have some time off from the responsibilities of care, give children a stimulating environment to play in that is safe and secure and encourage footfall to Britain’s high streets by enabling parents who cannot otherwise go shopping the opportunity to do so. 

Fact: Hop Skip and Jump's founder trustees have recently been named as Samantha Cameron's most inspiring women in a feature for Glamour magazine: 'Clarissa and Celia are two of the most dynamic women you could ever meet. Their charity is transforming the lives of families with disabled children...their kindness and commitment to helping so many families is amazing.'
