Mission

www.specialfriends.com .....Opening a world of communication for people with Learning/Intellectual Disabilities, their parents, carers and volunteers.

It is the first social network of its type for people with learning disabilities, their families, careers and volunteers.

The ultimate aim of the Special Friends Club is to become a major sponsor of the Special Olympics World Wide Organization, supporting its athletes and the World and National Games.  We also intend to support people with Learning Disabilities by setting up academies of excellence which will encourage its members to acheive their full potential in a variety of skills.

Program Description

www.specialfriends.com will provide a safe and secure environment for members to keep in touch with old friends and make new friends, to chat and also instant message, not only in their area but all around the world.  They can share experiences and inspirational stories and stay in touch with people who really understand them.  For people who experience difficulties with writing, spelling or using a keyborard, they will be able to build freindships and remain in contact with the help of "Smiley Talk."

Parents, careers and volunteers:  We will provide them with the tools to contact other families that will enable them to take the unknown out of the challenges that they may meet on a dalily basis.  We will provide parents/careers with the opportunity to share their insprational stories and experiences, find useful links and the opportunity to chat to other people.  They can also discuss the concerns and goals and share their positive stories and rewards with others who would be grateful for thie advice.
