Tell us about Touch Trust

I am a dad to a daughter with severe physical and neurological disabilities and where we live in mid Wales we are very limited as to what activities we have suitable and very little is available.

Touch Trust is a really great place to go…

Touch Trust is a really great place to go where Rosie and Heidi (the session leaders) engage and encourage everybody in the group to participate.

Makes a Sunday for my daughter and myself…

We try and go to Howey and Knighton when we can – these groups make a Sunday for my daughter and myself. 

Tell us about Touch Trust

Touch Trust for our autistic son is a safe creative space, where he can participate in a positive encouraging environment.  It is a great outlet for his emotions – happy or sad!

Touch Trust – a safe, creative environment…

We look forward to each session. The practitioners are always happy & mindful of each participant’s sensory & behavioural issues & adapt their responses, music & musical instruments for each child, as the parent I am so grateful for this.

We look forward to each session – the practitioners are always happy & adapt for each child…

Which is why year after year we keep coming to all the sessions we can!

Greggs grant to start Touch Trust sessions in Newtown

Thank you to Greggs bakeries chain #Greggs4good for their grant of £1, 410.00 to Dyfodol Powys Futures. 

The grant will be used for starting Touch Trust sessions in Newtown.  An additional session leader is just finishing training and then sessions will begin in the north of Powys (we already run them in Howey, near Llandrindod Wells).  We’ll let you know when they’re starting later this year.

Dyfodol Powys Futures bags £1000 from Tesco’s community grant scheme

Dyfodol Powys Futures is delighted to announce it has bagged £1000.00 from Tesco’s Bags of Help community grant scheme.

Bags of Help is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, and sees grants awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, it’s provided more than £75 million to over 25,000 local community projects.

The grant will pay for Touch Trust sessions for children and their families in Powys.  Touch Trust sessions include gentle massage, music, movement and dance as well as light, colour, sound and smell to stimulate the senses.  Sessions help development and learning within a social and nurturing environment for children with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities and Autistic Spectrum Disorder.  It is all about time for families together enjoying themselves and are run at the weekends.

We want to thank Tesco for taking us on and to everyone who voted for us – the money makes a huge difference in being able to run our family sessions through the year – Linda Pepper, Chair Dyfodol Powys Futures

Voting ran in stores throughout March and April with customers choosing which local project they would like to get the top award using a token given to them at the checkout.

Tesco customers get the chance to vote for three different groups each time they shop. Every other month, when votes are collected, three groups in each of Tesco’s regions are awarded funding.

Alec Brown, Tesco’s Head of Community, said: “Bags of Help contributes funds to community projects up and down the country and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from customers voting in their local stores. We’re looking forward to seeing more projects brought to life.”

Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Bags of Help continues to enable local communities up and down Britain to improve the local spaces and places that matter to them. The diversity of projects that are being funded shows that local communities have a passion to create something great in their area. We are pleased to be able to be a part of the journey and provide support and encouragement to help local communities thrive.”
