Why we need your support

> We need your help to turn our vision into a reality.

We’re building The Chamwell Centre, an exciting and ground-breaking new facility in the grounds of The Milestone Special School in Gloucester that will support the needs of disabled children and adults across the county. These include:

  • The Milestone School’s 323 pupils, all with severe and complex special needs, including 67 non-ambulant pupils.
  • Pupils and students with additional needs in pre-school, other schools and colleges.
  • All those in Gloucestershire who can benefit from fully accessible facilities for therapies, sports, athletics, work experience and leisure activities.

Help us reach our target

We need your help to raise the £5.1m required to make the Chamwell Centre a reality and transform the lives of disabled children and adults across Gloucestershire.
