Anyone who would like to
become a member needs to fill in a membership form.
It is a prerequisite for membership that a child in your care has a special need, they do not need to have a diagnosis. We do not usually ask for documentation in support of your child's special need but the trustees may refuse or withdraw membership if this cannot be provided when requested.
You can print a membership form from this page or alternatively you can collect a form from one of our coffee mornings or you you can send a SAE to Special Kids Bexhill, 1 Constable way, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex TN40 2UH and we will post a form to you (please enclose a note with your SAE stating you would like a membership form).
Click on the form to the right, to have a membership
form open in a new window as a PDF doc.
forms to be returned to: Special kids Bexhill, 1 Constable Way, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex TN40 2UH
Our membership form may be more detailed than expected but this is to ensure the easy running of the group and the safety of the charity.
If you have more than 1 child with special needs please only fill in one membership form, please state their special needs in the space provided. You can use an additionalpiece of paper if needed, please just send this with your membership form.
We ask for the diagnosis of your child/children as some venues request the information of the different disabilities that the children attending the activity have. (The children are never named, just a list of disabilities) This is for health and safety reasons and saves you time as we would already have the information rather than asking members each time we book particular venues.
We ask if your child/children are in receipt of DLA (we do not generally ask for proof of DLA or to know which rates your child receives, how ever some of the venues may ask for proof on the day we visit) as some venues offer discounts or free carer spaces to the children in receipt of DLA. It saves you time as we would already have the information rather than asking members each time we book particular venues.
Special Kids Bexhill has at its heart the ideal of
getting special needs children out and about and having fun with family in a supportive environment.
