Hello from Valley Daffodils!

Valley Daffodils was founded by Ceri Hooper, mum to our Young Ambassador Tomos.

Valley Daffodils is a fully inclusive group for individuals with all disabilities and additional learning needs.

Purely volunteer lead, Valley Daffodils offers a range of sessions and activities to meet the needs and promote the independence of both children and adults.

Our Aim is to:

  • Support individuals and their families/carers
  • Provide fully inclusive fun in safe places
  • Encourage full participation of individuals and their families in the running of the group
  • Empower children, young people and adults to make choices and get their voices heard
  • Develop play, friendships and social skills to broaden experiences.

Yet another wonderful morning! This is the lady that makes our children’s Saturday Mornings so wonderful and full of fun and joy. She does her very best for the Valley Daffodils group, every week the youngsters run in and are always so full of excitement.
I personally think we are all lucky to have found someone as dedicated as you Ceri Hooper. You have given families hope and time together to share stories where they would never be judged. Thank you for what you are doing xx
What a lovely welcoming group! Lovely activities, outings and day trips. It’s nice not to feel judged if a little one has a melt down. Everyone’s super friendly and we have a good laugh!
Always great fun! The kids love everything we have done with Valley Daffodils – great people and fantastic activities.
Valley Daffodils are always welcoming in any event. The kids have an absolute ball and it’s lovely to chat with other parents in the same position of having a disabled child.
I consider Valley Daffodils  them as an extended family.  A community with like minded parents where we can laugh, cry and moan but most of all we enjoy our time together! We can watch our children play together and enjoy themselves without being judged. The parents have great fun, we are a great group of people with equally amazing children. I love my Valley Daffodils!
It’s just wonderful! The atmosphere is amazing, it’s a great place to be.
