In 2009, we created Unique Kidz and Co to make sure that our own children’s needs were met and to provide a service for others like them. We spent two years researching how to run a business, talking to parents, and attending courses to provide us with childcare and business knowledge.

This community of support for disabled children started in one of our kitchen’s, Jane’s, and it kept growing as we grew in activities we provide. We now deliver our service to more than 130 children and young adults in our own building.

Our centre in Morecambe offers support activities, play, and social time – we also know that everyone is unique and that one size doesn’t fit all.

But Trinity is more than a set of buildings – its nursing teams work at the hospital and out in the community day and night, covering every part of the Fylde coast.It costs more than £9million to run all of Trinity’s services each year, which are provided completely free of charge to everyone who needs them. But with little help from the government, it must continue to call on its community – the people it cares for – for support.

I've marshalled a few of the obstacles on both events and the atmosphere is always brilliant. Everyone covered in mud, working hard as a team (or those that get adopted by other groups!) but plenty of laughs and smiles. It really is great to be a part of.The team work really hard to to make it a great experience and the attention to detail is obviously really important.After all that...the after party is always a banger and well worth hanging around for!

Born survivor was something else. It was probably the most challenging thing I’ve ever done but so rewarding and satisfying at the same time. It’s something for everyone to push themselves to there own limits. #believe #achieve

I have taken part in both Born Survivors in 2019; Capesthorne Hall and Lowther Castle. Both events were well organised, all staff were friendly and helpful. The courses were fantastic, lots of mud, water, challenging obstacles!!! But most all everyone had fun, helped and encouraged those that struggled, a really fabulous team event!! Already signed up for 2020 👍
