Yusra Jinaan Foundation
Our work is about bringing ease to children with disabilities and their families.
Every child is a blessing, and none more so than those who have additional needs.
Join us at the Yusra Jinaan Foundation as we work to make things better for these children, their carers, and the communities that they are part of.
Carer information sessions
YJF has already equipped 2 waves of Buckinghamshire parents and carers with the knowledge and confidence to navigate health and social care for their child in Autumn / Winter 2022 at the Marlow Opportunity Playgroup (MOP).
YJF has funded and organised 12 targeted speech and language / occupational therapy assessments for children who are at the greatest need but missing out due to NHS waiting lists. Our parent testimonials speak for themselves and we are grateful to be able to have facilitated these with your donations.
YJF is teaming up with Makaton Charity to develop more culturally diverse signs.
Ramadan 2023 Campaign: Support Box
We are developing a a support box on hospital wards that is given to families who have an early years child with additional needs - a helping hand at their side during tough hospital admissions where conventional toys are not accessible.
Many friends and families do not know how to communicate with children with additional needs. YJF is looking upskill families and communities to unlock the magic of connection with the children around them.
Carer Mental Health Focus
We are planning a series of mental health workshops as a space for carers to learn how to look after their wellbeing and network with other carers in their locality.
