In 2008 a small group of parents whose children had Hidden Impairments wanted to give their children positive experiences and help other families.  
Over time WHISH expanded and became a registered charity in 2015. In 2022 we moved to St Hildas Hub, Waterstead Lane, to enable us to increase the size of the sensory room and to put on more activities for our members in the Hub. 
We want to help reduce social isolation and offer exciting activities and educational and social opportunities for children and parents. WHISH aims to build confidence and improve mental wellbeing through sharing experiences and gaining beneficial life skills.
