About Challengers

Home Who we are About Challengers

A place where everyone belongs

  • Established in Guildford in 1979.
  • Play and Youth Centres in Guildford and Farnham.
  • Community based projects across Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex.
  • Safe, fun places and activities for children and young people from aged 2 to 18.

At Challengers, we have been challenging the barriers to play for 40 years. We provide a fun environment for disabled children and young people across the South East. At our schemes, children and young people can make friends and have the opportunity to try exciting new activities.

At the same time, families with disabled children can use these short breaks to pursue activities such as shopping or spending time with their other children. Families have told us that the Challengers lifeline of support keeps them strong.

Our non-exclusion policy means that anyone is welcome at a Challengers scheme. We don’t set any geographical boundaries and young people do not have to be on a ‘disability register’ to access our service – where others say no, Challengers says yes.
