Special People was formed in 1998 by a qualified teacher as a direct experience of the problematic system in finding reliable, appropriate and quality childcare at short notice for her child with disabilities.
Starting off in her living room, supplying a babysitting service and special needs nanny agency, Special People grew almost overnight. Within 3 months of the agency starting a local council approached them to look after a young autistic child that had behavioural problems and needed 1 to 1 support. From then on whenever the social workers had children with special requirements, they knew that Special People could help!
Within its first year Special People were approached to supply workers for a camping holiday for Autistic children. After the success of the camping trip, word spread about Special People and successfully catapulted them into the business it is today.
Special People now work with over 14 boroughs in London, has branches in London and Manchester and a collective team of over 250 agency staff members, all offering, reliable and trustworthy services to all our disabled clients.
