Information about the School

BOSP is a small independent charity that has been supporting families for over 33 years. Charity Number: 1107392

BOSP improves the lives of children and young people with complex disabilities or life-limiting conditions and their families by providing high-quality, fun, educational activities, support and respite care.

Profound learning disabilities and critical illnesses blight young lives and puts great stress on the family unit. Children and young people who are very ill or have a disability, face discrimination and substantial barriers to participation in mainstream activities, resulting in the whole family becoming marginalised and vulnerable to depression, family breakdown and social exclusion.

BOSP aims to offer children and young people with disabilities access to the same activities and opportunities as their peers, allowing them to develop independence, self-esteem and social skills in a supportive environment, whilst their families benefit from the vital break our sessions provide, enabling them to catch up on much needed sleep, spend time with their other children or just have an undisturbed shower or cup of tea.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
