Families United Network (FUN) is a registered Charity and membership organisation which works to support children, young people and families living with disabilities throughout Bedfordshire.  Membership registration is now FREE and enables families to access all of our clubs and activities. Families must be registered members to access our services.

Families Untied Network can offer you and your family a support network and leisure activities, outings, school holiday clubs etc.
