Our Patron


"I am honoured to be the Patron of B.A.N.G. Through my work locally I have understood that there is a need for ever improving services to parents and families that require some additional assistance in supporting their children.

Often, where a son or daughter has additional needs they can fall within "a category" that opens the door for support, but this is not always the case. Parents then have had to struggle to get the recognition and support they need. B.A.N.G offers huge support for families with this process - a process often baffling, complex and frustrating. With social contact and good company, as well as practical help and support the B.A.N.G network provides really valuable help for families across the region that, together, can provide a strength for ensuring that services can and will be improved."
