What our families say…

“Accuro allows our daughter to play, interact and meet children who won’t judge her. She’s one of the gang.”

“He does no other social or independent activities apart from school, so going to Accuro is really important for him and for us.”

“This is an amazing charity. We are blessed to have you.”

Happy New Year! We hope you had a restful Christmas and New Year. As we look forward to the year ahead, we’re sharing some simple, feel-good ways that you can get involved and make a difference to people with disabilities by supporting Accuro in 2022.
We have exciting plans for the year, including launching our life skills programme for young adults, STRIDE, in Uttlesford and of course, continuing with fun, safe, inclusive activities at our existing clubs and services for people with disabilities in West Essex. Your support helps us to continue these valuable services.

Cook Along with Luke

Join Chef Luke Fishpool on Friday 11th February, at 6pm, on Zoom for a Valentines Cook Along and prepare his Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni, a recipe and method suitable for the inexperienced Cook as well as those more confident in the kitchen.
