Open Telecom are proud to support and work with the UK based charity Challengers.

Challengers provides play schemes for disabled children and young people aged 2-25. We make it possible for any child, with any impairment, to access essential play opportunities, helping them to develop vital skills such as co-ordination, confidence and communication, all whilst having fun, making friends and challenging their impairment. Our work also provides an essential short break to families who are often exhausted from the demands of caring. Families often describe Challengers as a lifeline, and say that without such support family life would be likely to break down.

Some of the inclusive play and leisure activities for disabled children and young people are achieved through:

  • Preschool groups

  • Family Days

  • Playschemes

  • Youthschemes & overnight activities

  • Young Adult Schemes
