Fledglings is a charity for children with additional needs, so our products are priced to try to make them affordable to anyone who needs them. Many of them are subsidised, or sold at cost price, and any surplus that Fledglings makes is invested back into the charity, helping us to help more disabled children and their families.
Since discovering Fledglings I am reassured to have them in my care team for my daughter. Always helpful, knowledgeable and really understand 'special world'. Recently I got an unprompted email saying my daughters swim suit colour (very important to her) was being discontinued and would I like to get the next size up. Worth browsing their website shop too to spark ideas for helping to make our children feel a sense of achievement, live to their full potential and take some of the pressure of us parent carers.
Fantastic catalogue, ordered my son, some waterproof swim shorts, ear putty, ear plugs and a head band for swimming, such a wide range of specialist product at very good prices, ordering and delivery was very easy and the products are great quality, can be a real stress trying to get hold of specilist products for my son, Thanks. I'm so happy his school ' Kingfisher in Oldham' recommened 'Fledglings' to us, it has made such a difference.
