Welcome to Bee-Able
We have been providing a service in the Selby area since April 2013 in response to local need, filling a vital gap in support available for young people and adults living with a disability and their families.
We pride ourselves on offering a unique service that enables and empowers the people we work with to live life to their full potential, whilst providing a safe and secure environment for children, young people and adults to socialize, build confidence and offer assistance with independence skills and allowing parents/carers the "time out" that they might need.
Care can be provided for children and young people from 8 years to 25 years within our group settings, we also are able to provide care and support to younger children and older adults with a combination of additional needs including physical, mental and behavioral, we have no upper age limit.
We currently provide a social group every Saturday at two different locations, these sessions run from 10 am to 2pm, each group providing support for 10/15 children and young people. A Childsitting and buddying service based on assessed needs and companionship and help within the home.
During the School holidays we provide a number of holiday activities this has included trips out via public transport to the seaside, museums and theme parks.
Siblings will also have the opportunity to have support through regular monthly groups and holiday activities.
We encourage the same outcomes from all our groups for each child, young person and adult to reach their full potential.
Please contact us via the contact tab for more information.
We also work closely to Parent Power Project
PPP aims to support parents who have children with additional needs. As parents ourselves, we believe by sharing our experiences and knowledge of what works and what doesn’t – we can help other parents.
We provide a voice for parents and are keen to ensure services are developed across Selby District to meet the needs of families in the area.
PPP has a steering group made up of parents and is supported by Selby District AVS, Bee Able C.I.C., Ryedale Special Families, North Yorkshire County Council and Beech Tree Surgery. Together we are able to provide the support and information parents need on a wide range of issues.

“My son absolutly loves attending Bee-Able club where he has many friends not only in the other children but the volunteers. When he comes home from Bee-Able he enjoys telling me all about the fun things he has done there. I have a lot of trust in the fantastic people who look after my son at Bee-Able and would recommend anyone who has a child with special needs to bring them along and see how great it is.”

“My two sons absolutly love attending the group and being on the Autistic Spectrum, it is a fantastic way for them to increase their social skills/interaction whilst being in a safe environment with knowledeable and caring adults to look after them. What a wonderful and long awaited group."

“The 6 weeks holiday has been made easier because of the group. It is a fantastic group and the volunteers that help with the children are dedicated and a great help. Bee - Able has taken the children out to some fantastic places and while the children are there having the respite, means that we get tro spend some quality time with other siblings."
