Promoting social inclusion among children
Hi! Welcome to Oshi's World!
We are a local charity based in The Vale of Glamorgan, inspired by a little boy called Oshi. Our founders, Oshi's mum and aunties, set out to create an accessible play space for children with disabilities and their family and friends
"When Oshi was born with complex medical needs, I found it increasingly difficult to get out and about. I couldn't take Oshi to mother and baby groups like I had imagined. His sensory impairments meant that they were often too loud, too busy, or I simply felt exposed and vulnerable with all of Oshi's medical equipment. I was desperate find activities and pre-school sessions that where inclusive of physical and sensory impairments. There is a lot of misinformation out there around accessible services and so we set out to remove as many of the barriers that disabled people, and those around them, face when accessing social and leisure activities.”
Anna Liddell - Oshi's mum and Co-founder of Oshi's World.
“Oshi’s World is doing fantastic work - we come to events and
are made to feel ‘normal’ and completely welcome always.
You really are making a difference. Thank you."
Working in Partnership
with The Mini Movement
Welcome to the magical ‘Sunshine Movement’ disability classes suitable for children aged 1-18 run by The Mini Movement. The classes are designed and run by Beth Darlington who is an HCPC and CSP registered paediatric physiotherapist. The Sunshine Movement aims to create a space where families and caregivers of children with physical disabilities could come to bond and connect with their children in a fun and relaxed environment!
Why not become an Oshi's World member?
Since our inception in 2016, the charity has grown and evolved. Our weekend drop in sessions were a great success but since covid, we have moved our support online and run referral based 1:1 sessions. We really hope we can meet regularly in person again soon.
Our membership scheme enables families with a disabled child to access all activities and events organised by Oshi’s World. Whether this is our online support group, online music and dance sessions, community events and meet ups or 1:1 in-person sessions (where possible).
