Our Mission

Our mission at Gympanzees is to deliver multiple fully inclusive leisure facilities that are easily accessible for disabled children, young people and their families; meeting exercise, play and social needs. There are one million disabled children and young people in the UK. 84% of families with a disabled child can’t access regular leisure and their health and well-being are suffering as a result. 72% suffer from mental health difficulties as a result of isolation.

Our Vision

Our vision at Gympanzees is that every disabled child and young person in the UK can enjoy a life filled with exercise, play and friendship.

We plan to achieve this by building the first Gympanzees in Bristol

This will be the country’s first, fully inclusive leisure facility which will cater for the play, exercise and social needs of the 58,000 disabled children and young people within an hour of Bristol. Read Why We Exist, what the Solution is, and How We Will Do It

"We absolutely loved the pop up gym, genius idea - wish it was available all the time. Managed a full 50 min tutor session afterwards...that’s the power of sensory integration - usually 15 min max!"

"Jaiden who is 6 and I visited our 1st session today at Gympanzees, it was absolutely brilliant and Jaiden loved it. It was very relaxed for both of us and everyone was very understanding of all the children’s needs. I would fully recommend Gympanzees as there is nowhere else like it!"

"Today my 6yr old son and I attended the first Pop-up Gympanzee Activity Centre session. In my mind I knew what to expect, I’d watched all the videos and followed all the updates but I still wasn’t prepared for the amazing feeling I came away with."

"This was our 1st visit with our 2 boys and it was fantastic, both boys had great fun, there is so much for them to do. We will be coming back every week! I hope this can become permanent as it is very much needed as it is the only place to cater for a full range of disabilities and the people are lovely."
