Fundrums has been working with special needs groups for over 20 years. In this time I have gained a lot of experience and this is why the main focus of my work with Fundrums is in this area.

The programs and people have been diverse, ranging in all abilites. Currently clients range in age from 5 to 80! Highlights have been working with Brothers of Charity, WIDA, Special Olympics and numerous other projects.

In a Fundrums session everyone gets to take part regardless of ability, being in the circle is inclusion in itself. Everyone is allowed and encouraged to take part, there are no rules, just a safe open space for expression and creativity.

There are various elements such as turn taking that develop confidence and make the person feel good and listened to.
