A £1.2million centre which will help children with disabilities has opened its doors.
The Pace centre, which will educate youngsters with sensory motor disorders and support their families, opened on Thursday in Wendover Road, Aylesbury.
Chief executive Amanda Richardson said “This is a wonderful day to celebrate the contributions of many staff, friends, colleagues and very generous donors to the project, and to reflect how far we have come in such a short time.
“Pace thanks everybody involved in making today possible and we look forward to more exciting progress as we work towards the completion of the remainder of the project in 2015.”
“Early intervention is critical in achieving the best possible outcomes for young children with disabilities. Our new centre will mean that more children will be able to have the early input they need to help them achieve their full potential in life”.
The new centre will allow the Pace organisation to consolidate its existing early years services onto a single site.
Extra work will now be able to be carried out as the organisation hopes to expand.
Having laid the inaugural brick almost one year ago seven-year old Sonny Pikett from Aston Clinton led the celebrations at the opening of the new facility.
Pace says that the new centre will transform the lives of many children with disabilities like Sonny, and is the first phase of the organisation’s development plans.
