Project Home

We’ve secured a building and now we need your help to raise £8 million to make the necessary renovations to bring our world of inclusive fun and fitness to life.


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.

The Gympanzees Centre will host 200,000 visits from disabled children, young people and their families every year. Our new home will be open 364 days, 7 days a week and will provide endless opportunities for health, happiness and support. 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.

The story so far...

Over 141 days of Pop Ups from 2018 to present, we’ve welcomed over 23,000 visitors who have enjoyed the unique, life-changing benefits of accessible fun and fitness, alongside lending our specialist equipment to over 2,500 families and schools over the past four years.

We have had fantastic feedback, but families crucially deserve more than temporary Pop Ups and remote support.

Families need a place they can trust and rely upon all year round that is welcoming, safe, fun and supports all of their health and well-being needs.

First of it's kind

Catering for people (0-25yrs) with sensory, physical, learning difficulties, SEN and any mild to profound disability and open seven days a week, our new home will provide endless possibilities for health, happiness and support and create cherished family memories. 

This world-class facility, designed by the children and families who will use it, will be the first of its kind in the UK and bring everything under one roof for children and young people with disabilities and their families.

Sponsor a space in the centre

Every space in our facility will help build a world of fun and fitness for thousands of children and young people with disabilities and their families. The build costs have been derived from the current total build cost divided by estimated sq ft of each room and are subject to change throughout the development of the site.

Isabella's Story - Told by Mum Emma

Isabella, my ten-year-old daughter, has quadriplegic cerebral palsy. She relies on a wheelchair full-time but cognitively, she’s a bright and social child, who enjoys all the things that any typically developing child would.

Gympanzees was a crucial support for us during the summer and easter holidays. As Isabella has got older, organising a day trip or simply going to the local park has become challenging. Fortunately, Gympanzees was a lifeline for our family. Carefully planned sessions enabled us to meet other families in similar situations and make new friends.

Both Isabella and my younger son, George, could access and enjoy all the wonderful equipment. Isabella’s newfound love for trampolining brought her immense joy. Isabella had never been on a trampoline before. She absolutely loved the sensation of bouncing up and down! She didn’t want the fun to end and was heartbroken at the end of every session.

The gym enabled Isabella to try new equipment and work muscles that had never been worked before. It was great to see her using an ‘Innowalk’ and riding an ‘I Joy’. George thrived in the soft play area, and the sensory room provided a peaceful space where both kids could engage.

The facility’s thoughtful design even accommodated her special needs, including accessible changing facilities. All of the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. They went that extra mile to ensure the whole family had an enjoyable and memorable experience.

Gympanzees provided an inclusive environment where Isabella could fully participate and enabled my daughter to shriek with excitement as she played.
