Barratt Homes supports children’s charity with generous donation


Housebuilder Barratt Homes has donated £1,500 to independent Richmond upon Thames charity, Skylarks.  

Skylarks works to support children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and their families. It provides a range of free activities for SEN children and their siblings, such as inclusive play, drama, karate, life skills and careers development to uplift children’s confidence and skills.   

The charity also offers support including information and advice for over 4000 registered families across the UK. It regularly hosts talks, courses and peer support groups for parents and carers of      children with additional needs.   

The contribution from Barratt North Thames will help support the running costs of Skylarks as it continues to grow, enabling the charity to provide an inclusive environment for children with additional needs to build lasting relationships and the opportunity to develop through play, activities, and therapies.  

The donation comes from The Barratt Foundation, the housebuilder’s charity partnership, which supports children, young people and disadvantaged groups wherever Barratt Developments PLC, of which Barratt Homes is a part, operate across the UK.  

Marc Woolfe, Sales and Marketing Director for Barratt North Thames commented, “Skylarks offers invaluable activities and advice for      children with disabilities and their families, and we are proud to support its running costs as it continues to grow. Building a thriving community is more than just building homes and we hope this donation will enable the charity to work with even more families this year.”  

Aaron Guiver, Managing Director at Skylarks added, “On behalf of the entire charity, the children who we support and their families too, I want to express our heartfelt thanks to Barratt North Thames for their generosity. Skylarks offers a range of support that reflects the diverse needs of the children, young people and families that we work with. This donation will help us to continue to offer this support while we grow as an organisation.”
