About Firefly Friends

The Firefly range of products are inspired by 'special needs family participation'. That simply means they are practical, fun products that help children with special needs take part in daily family life.

Because for us it's not just what we make, it's what we make possible.

For us, life is all about experiences and being face to face with our friends and loved ones.

By enhancing the child's perspective and giving them the tools to 'join in', we can ensure that the child not only has the opportunity to participate, but can also be at the heart of it.

We understand that we can't change a child's health or environment, but by using our products, we believe we can have an influence on their body structures, activities and participation.
