A leading young-man’s association has donated over £4000 to support The SNAP Centre.
Billericay Round Table have donated £4,190 to help buy four new iPad Air devices for children and young people to use plus an additional two devices for SNAP staff to offer support, advice and information to parents and carers attending their specialist centre in Essex.
The new iPads will allow twice as many children to use the IT suite. The different applications and software that the group also funded to use on the iPads and computers will help to enhance the development of sensory, communication, motor and social play skills.
Part of the donation will also go towards the creation of a new sector on the website aimed at giving families access to the content contained in the charities specialist library without the need to physically visit the centre. This will help parents’ access information allowing them to make confident choices on issues they are experiencing, leading to improved parenting skills.
Billericay Round Table, a group for men aged 18-45, visited the centre to see the impact of the donation for themselves.

It was a pleasure to show them all round the centre. It’s so nice to chat to funders about how we use the money and the impact that their funding will have on the families we support and the work we do in general.[/quote]
