bibic has been transforming the lives of disabled children and their families since 1972.
Our mission is to help children (aged 6 months to 18 years) with conditions affecting their social, communication and learning abilities to achieve their potential for a happier and more fulfilled life.
The charity was founded by Keith Pennock whose daughter Alison acquired a brain injury at a young age. As all fathers do, Keith knew that Alison could achieve so much in her life if they could just access the right support and experience. He travelled to America to find the therapies he knew were available and brought the techniques and strategies back to England.
The range of conditions bibic can support and the therapy programmes we offer have been developed over the years. As well as the charity’s National Assessment Centre in Somerset we also have a team of Lottery-funded Outreach Therapists working closely with families in their own homes across the UK.
bibic is a registered charity (number 1057635) and, receiving no government funding, relies heavily on support and donations from trusts and foundations, companies, individuals and community groups to provide the life-changing help needed by many children and their families.
