Alexander is 5 1/2 years old and has autism. Though currently non verbal, he is a happy bouncy boy who loves climbing, water/messy play and adores being outside.

Alex attended our pre-school a few years ago for year and a half and now attends our Short Breaks play scheme. 

“The staff are simply spiffing. They are so  understanding of Alex in regards to his provisions and needs; plus the advice and support they have given has been invaluable. He simply wouldn't have progressed as well as he has today, nor me as a mother, if it wasn't for them all. Thank you from the bottom of my family's hearts.” Estelle Burton (Mum).



Isabelle is 24 years old and her disability is Angelman Syndrome which is a rare neuro-genetic disorder.

For Isabelle this results in her being non-verbal and with a mental age of 12 - 14 months but it varies from person to person. 

Isabelle has been with The Hamlet for 8 years and for her and her family, The Hamlet has made a true difference to all their lives. 

“For the first time in her life she has found the glove that fits. I cannot recommend The Hamlet enough” Lindsey, Isabelle’s mum.
