About Us

Sophie’s Moonbeams Trust charity was set up in memory of Sophie who was adopted and had additional needs. The charity’s focus is helping children and young adults who are adopted or have special needs.

Who Do We Help?

We help families who have a child or young adult (up to the age of 20) who is adopted or has special needs. Help is limited to families with a household income of less than £50,000 per year.

How Do We Help?

We as parents understand the frustration of trying to find appropriate help for our children, whether it be conventional therapy no longer available through lack of national/local funding or alternative therapies found to help ease the lives of our children. We want to help families with the funding they need for therapies or to cover the costs of training or useful conferences.

We will work alongside various organisations and therapists (service providers) who will be the supplier of the help you need.

Our focus is always on the benefits to the child or young adult involved.

How Do I Apply For Help?

You will need to identify the type of support that you feel will benefit the child or young adult and also the person or organisation that can provide that support. We then ask you to fill out an application form (on this website) to apply for a grant.

Visit the Grants page for more detailed information on the kind of help Sophie’s Moonbeams Trust is able to offer and the grant application process.

Any service provider visiting our website should look at the Service Providers page for details on how the charity works with providers.
