TAG has developed its activities over the last few years and has become a leading short breaks provider in the local community. Membership has grown over 128% within the last two years and the needs of the young people are greater. TAG is supporting more children who are wheelchair users or those with mobility impairments. The buggy designed by disabled people for disabled people can be used on the beach, in the woods and on the snow which will help to ensure the all the youngsters attending TAG groups can take part in all the activities.
To help TAG achieve its goal of being fully inclusive they wanted to purchase a Hippocampe all-terrain buggy which can be towed, pushed or self-propelled. TAG is growing and it is seeing local professionals as well as families refer new young people to its activities. It is currently supporting over 239 children and young people.TAG has developed its activities over the last few years and has become a leading short breaks provider in the local community.

TAG is delivering more activities across every day of the week and developing a popular residential offer including weekend residential trips and holidays including surfing holidays in Wales and Skiing holidays in Andorra. Its aim is to provide experience that our young people would not usually have the opportunity to take part in.
TVF was delighted to award a grant of £2,500 to TAG so that they could purchase the all-terrain buggy they so desperately needed.
“We are thrilled to have taken delivery of the new all-terrain buggy thanks to funding provided by The Victoria Foundation. This new buggy will help us meet the needs of children and young people on our day trips, weekend residentials and holidays. The buggy has some fabulous attachments to help it move across all terrains including beach wheels for sand and skis for snow! We would like to pass on our thanks to everyone involved with the foundation.”
