Bexley SNAP which provides support to disabled children and their families in Bexley have been adapting to the current situation and are now providing some of their groups for older disabled children online. They have also started a temporary toy library for younger children who usually attend their groups. The first delivery of toys was made on 23/04/20 benefiting 6 children plus their siblings. The families were overjoyed with the idea and items they received. Bexley SNAP will gradually be rolling this out to as many families as they can.
