BANG Borders Additional Needs Group  Welcome to Borders Additional Needs Group

Borders Additional Needs Group or "B.A.N.G" as we are known is a group set up by parents of children with special needs to support families who have children with additional, complex or rare conditions.

Support, Information and Advice

  • Find out how to access local resources

  • Expand your knowledge of local and national services and organisation

  • Enjoy group events; children and family outings and activities

Get Involved - Join B.A.N.G


Children with special needs are not an easily defined group. What defines them is the fact that they need additional help in some areas of development when compared to other children.

In general whatever the problem it is likely that parents will need advice and support.

Our meetings and activities are for the whole family unit, parents, carers, siblings, and grandparents as a special need has an impact on the whole family. You will find support, advice and information at B.A.N.G. To join us please complete our application or feel free to contact us for more information.

Our Principles & What We Do


At Borders Additional Needs Group we support each other and encourage our children to live up to their potential, every child is celebrated for his or her uniqueness.

We look at children as individuals first, and then consider their special needs.
