OUR VISION – Is for teenage volunteers to be given the opportunity to enable young children with a disability to feel part of the community.
Since the beginning in 1986, Pegasus has grown into a well-established community voluntary scheme. We provide open access for disabled children and young adults, providing them with opportunities to meet
We have our very own Youth Forum. It was felt there was a definite need in the area, for our older children to experience the same opportunities as other young adults. In 2017 We hope to Establish a Pegasus Plus Group.

How Pegasus coped with COVID-19
During isolation our children, parents, carers, committee all did our level best to keep our children amused and busy or finding some forgotten skills bringing them to light. It did seem to bring out the very best in us, Learning new skills has to be the bonus of self-isolation.
Whether it was delivering Care packages, socially distanced of course, or Easter eggs, we tried to keep Pegasus in the minds of our children letting them know we were still there for them. We even managed a full three weeks during 2021, by the skin of our teeth, covid free in between lockdowns of course.
