To maintain Reach’s reputation as the most established charity offering valuable support to the upper limb difference community and Health professionals in the UK and Ireland
- To enable children with upper limb differences to live life without limits.

Even in the darkest moments, we want Reach to be a ray of hope in our members’ lives. We see the potential in all Reach children and celebrate their ability, never focussing on disability.
We recognise that different families want different levels of support, and we tailor our approach to suit them. We’re there to provide resources, support and practical advice; whatever our families tell us they need.
Our members are amazing and we shout about their achievements whenever we can. We share success stories and hero those ‘wow’ moments, big and small, to show families just how much our incredible children are capable of.
Connecting families is a vital part of Reach’s work and the bonds this creates is priceless. Whether it’s at our family weekend, branch meetings or on a Facebook forum, we help members to build relationships that last a lifetime.
