Hop, Skip & Jump Horsham – Swan Walk Shopping Centre
The Hop Skip and Jump Foundation are delighed to have launched a brand new care centre for the disabled in the heart of Horsham’s Swan Walk retail development. Following from the successful launch of a similar centre in Swindon, this centre is the second of its kind in the country, bringing immediate respite care to Horsham town centre. The new unit is situated in a great location close to the likes of Wilko, M&S and British Homestores.
Care in the High Street was launched at a reception held by Samantha Cameron at 10 Downing Street last year and has received Mrs. Cameron’s full support: ‘Hop Skip and Jump’s commitment to helping families cope with the challenges a disabled child brings is amazing, whether at their three dedicated centres, or through the new ‘Care in the High Street’ facilities. I passionately support Hop Skip and jump in their vision to offer these services right across the country, for every family who needs them.’
The new Horsham centre contains a soft play area, sensory facilities and a fully accessible wet room and changing facility, meaning that Hop Skip and Jump can cater for children with a variety of complex disabilities and special educational needs.
Clarissa Mitchell, trustee for Hop Skip and Jump: ‘We are really excited to have opened in Horsham. We have, for a long time, identified a real need for this kind of care in West Sussex and can’t wait to get started helping some of the most vulnerable people in the county. We are very grateful to Horsham Town Council, The North Horsham Council Local Committee and Sussex Masonic Charities for their support in this new venture.’
Hop Skip and Jump have worked in partnership with AVIVA Investors, Simons Group and Horsham District Council to redevelop the unit in Swan Walk which has long stood empty. Opened right in time for the summer holidays, the new care centre will bring vibrant new life to Horsham town centre and help families in desperate need of support.
