Flamingo Chicks was founded by Katie Sparkes, frustrated at the lack of inclusive opportunities for her daughter Poppy, who has cerebral palsy. Flamingo Chicks exists to create a world where every child with a disability enjoys their right to access services and opportunities to realise their full potential. We do so by championing inclusive opportunities; disabled children’s rights to participate in dance alongside their peers, showcasing what disabled children can do and the value of disabled and non-disabled children working together. Keeping the voices of disabled children at the heart of our work, we are a growing movement who want to see change in society for disabled people and how they are treated. Flamingo Chicks has performed and made speeches at high profile events such as at Downing Street and the United Nations in New York.
We are a fast growing, responsive and effective organisation. We have 3,000 participants in our classes each year and with the launch of Hatching Chicks and Flamingo Dance, now stretch from babies to adults.
