BOSP’s vision is for children and young adults with complex disabilities or life-limiting conditions, and their families to live the best life possible.

BOSP improves the lives of children and young adults with complex disabilities or life-limiting conditions, and their families, by providing high-quality, fun, educational activities, support and respite care

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)

Our 17 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.

If you want to find out how we can support your family, please call The BOSP Office on 01268 553117.


Formed 32 years ago, BOSP is a small independent charity that relies on the kindness & compassion of charitable trusts, personal donors, and corporate/community fundraisers, to enable us to deliver our work. 

If you would like to make a donation, fundraise or volunteer for BOSP, so that more children and young people with disabilities in our community can be supported, please do get in touch - your care & 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."
