Brighter Opportunities for Special People 

BOSP is a small independent charity, and for 31 years has been supporting families and their children / young adults who have disabilities or life-limiting conditions, by providing developmental activities, respite and family support

In 2022, we were awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (an equivalent of an MBE and the highest recognition a voluntary group can receive)

BOSP aims to offer children and young people with disabilities access to the same activities and opportunities as their peers, allowing them to develop independence, self-esteem and social skills in a supportive environment, whilst their families benefit from the vital break our sessions provide.

Our 15 high-quality clubs and support services are delivered weekdays, evenings, weekends and school holidays, for children and young people, from birth to 25 years.

Please see our Activities and Services section for more details.

Sessions take place in Basildon, Pitsea, Billericay and Brentwood, as well as out and about in the community throughout Essex and the London Borough of Havering.

BOSP is mainly self-funded and relies on charitable trusts, donations, and corporate/community fundraising to enable us to deliver our services.  If you would like to find out how we can support your family, please call The BOSP Office on 01268 553117.


if you would like to make a donation, fundraise or volunteer for BOSP, so that more children and young people with disabilities can be supported please do get in touch - your support is very much needed and appreciated.

"I have been accessing BOSP for 10+ years and it really has proven to be a sanity saver. Caring for a child/young adult with disabilities is a lonely, soul destroying, draining existence at times and being able to relax from this for a few hours has been invaluable, enabling me to continue to have my son at home. There is absolutely no other suitable provision in the local vicinity where my son can go to experience a club-like provision where his special needs are met and catered for and where he receives first class care for his care."
