Hello from Valley Daffodils!

Valley Daffodils is run by Ceri Hooper, mum to our Young Ambassador Tomos who has Down syndrome and Max. The group is supported by Follow Your Dreams Charity.

The group is for children with learning disabilities and their siblings, parents, carers, grandparents. They organise coffee mornings for a cuppa and a chat which is a fabulous way to meet new people. They also plan fun family activities and parent workshops including weekly disability friendly dance workshops, soft play and days out.

If you ever feel that your failing sweetheart, look around you on a Saturday morning with all the wonderful ppl surrounding you, and the answers there. Valley Daffodils Caerphilly South Wales Special Needs Inclusive Fun Children Adults Family Review
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 as we are with a disabled child.
My experience with Valley Daffodils….I consider them as an extended family. A community with like minded parents where we can laugh, cry, moan, but most of all enjoy 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!
