MEETING THE NEEDS is a registered charity and was formed in 1999 to benefit the pupils in Overmonnow Special Needs Resource Base. Several of the pupils currently in the SNRB require specialist equipment to enable them to access the curriculum. Some resources are designed to make ordinary tasks manageable, tasks that the more able take for granted but to our special children, are hard won achievements.
Most specialised equipment is costly hence having charitable status allows us to access areas of funding only available to groups that are recognised by the Charities Commission.
Over the years we have received tremendous support from many groups some nationally and others within our own community. Meeting The Needs is very fortunate to have the support of The Free Masons, The Rotary Club of Monmouth, Monmouthshire County Council, local businesses. and individual friends.
It is the aim of the charity to support the education of the children and to enhance the quality of life for children with additional educational needs. We are ceaselessly fundraising as we strive to improve and better the lives of our children in many small but significant ways ; therefore we pledge to work tirelessly to provide the pupils with a good quality of life.
