What Does Sky Badger Do?
Sky Badger is a charity that finds help and adventure for disabled children and their families all over the UK.
We do this by building bridges between disabled children and the charities and services available to help. We find everything from disabled sports clubs to sibling groups to ‘make a wish’ charities and tell families about them though our website, social media platforms, videos, information packs and helpdesk.
When was Sky Badger Born?
Sky Badger was created by four mums in October 2011. Between their 11 children, three are disabled and two have life-limiting conditions. The idea was to build a website giving families information relevant to them. It needed to be positive, extremely easy to use and fun.
How did Sky Badger get it's name?
A little 7-year-old boy with special needs called Max invented Sky Badger. When playing Superheroes with his brother, Max used to tie a tea towel around his neck and magically gain superpowers to win any battle.
We’d all like to thank Max for inspiring us to create Sky Badger. Especially because he's my Max. Max became ill with his first serious seizure when he was 6 years old and has complex medical and learning disabilities. He's now a strapping teenager, taller than me even in heals. Without Max there would be no Sky Badger. Thank you Max.
Just like Max, I hope Sky Badger we can give you all the superpowers to win any battle too.
