Children Services

Umbrella receives funding from Derby City Council to provide fun activities to children aged 5-18 years. Umbrella can offer one to one support in the home/community as well as fun and exciting social groups including weekend day trips and school holiday play schemes

Play & Leisure Services

The aim of the Play and Leisure Service is to help promote specialist activities for children and young people with disabilities in their local area.

Adult Services

Umbrella runs two exciting projects for young people age 18-30:  INDE and TEAM. Both tailored to suit individual needs.

Support group

Information, Advice and Family Support

An essential part of our work is keeping in regular contact with parents/carers, letting them know we care and helping to identify ways in which we may be able to offer support.


On the last Friday of every month from 6.30pm-8.30pm, we run a special group for the siblings of those accessing Umbrella services. Anyone aged 11-17 can come along to this group which is funded by Umbrella.
