About the Bluestack Special Needs Foundation

The Bluestack Special Needs Foundation CLG is a voluntary organisation run predominantly by parents of children with special needs and professionals who work in the disability sector. Set up by the Bluestack Challenge committee in 2002, the Bluestack Special Needs Foundation has as its core aim to ‘Enhance the Lives of People with Additional Needs’. The Bluestack Foundation provides a range of services and supports to families who have dependants with physical, sensory and intellectual, and mental health disabilities, regardless of whether the disability results in profound, moderate or mild additional needs. They also work with families who are pre-diagnosis but engaged in the assessment of needs process.
