Closure of respite centre for disabled children
A respite centre for disabled children in Cheltenham has been forced to close its doors due to a lack of funding.
Parents say a vital lifeline has been taken away after the closure of Hop, Skip and Jump, located at Seven Springs.
Kim Moxham from Gloucester says the care provided for her autistic son benefited the whole family and called the closure "devastating".
A statement on the Hop Skip and Jump website said the decision "followed a lengthy but ultimately disappointing consultation with Gloucestershire County Council over additional resources."
"Sustaining the level of care that the centre provides requires £250,000 per year and despite our best efforts we have been unable to secure this level of funding," it continued.
"We thank all the staff, volunteers, donors, patrons and families who have helped to maintain the centre over the 37 years it has been in operation. Closing the centre has not been an easy decision for any of us."
Gloucestershire County Council said funding for the centre had increased year on year for the past three years.
