Building for the Future is a Wokingham based, parent led charity providing activities, support and therapy for children with disabilities and/or additional needs and their families. We are based at Our House, our own fully accessible play centre, where families can meet, and all children are celebrated. We are again open and running Stay and Play sessions.
With a range of facilities, including soft play, a sensory room, teen chill-out zone, PCs, gaming and free play area, at Our House, disabled children can relax, have fun and be truly valued and accepted for who they are.
Building for the Future runs a range of events and activities throughout the year, dates and details can be found in the What’s On section. The facilities can also be hired for private functions including groups, meetings and birthday parties.
Parents and carers can find support from one another, share the ups and downs, as well as finding valuable information about raising their disabled child. Siblings can make friends with other children in similar situations.
With your help, we can keep providing this essential support. As a charity we are totally dependent upon fundraising and donations to enable us to run and maintain Our House, provide activities, therapies and events, and to support the families who use our facilities each year.
If you would like to make a one off donation or set up a regular gift, please visit our JustGiving page. It’s quick and easy and enables us to claim an additional 25p on every £1 via GiftAid, without costing you a penny extra!
Supporting families is what we do. Find out what the families who visit our centre have to say.

They were both charming and took the time to speak to many of our guests including some of the youngsters enjoying the new facilities.
