We've got a building, and now you can help us make it a home!

A world of fun & fitness for all disabled children

Our Mission

Our mission at Gympanzees is to enable every child and young person with a disability to access regular play, exercise and friendship, to improve their physical and mental health and well-being, and to take their families out of isolation.

Why We Help

There are 90,000 young people with disabilities within an hour of Bristol and over 1.5 million in the UK.

77% of children with disabilities cannot access regular leisure facilities so can’t play, exercise or socialise in the same ways as their peers.

"You've opened up a world in which we can just exist exactly how we need to."

Our Appeal

Gympanzees Project Home Appeal

Help us make this building a home

We are fundraising to open the UK's first fully accessible exercise, play, and social centre for disabled children and young people.

We have already fundraised to secure a building and, now we need to raise £8 million to make the necessary renovations to open a purpose-built facility by June 2026.
