Who we support

helping_people_with_disabilities_jamaicaThe NEF supports children and families whose lives are touched by disability and special education needs in Jamaica.

We provide practical supports directly to parents, caregivers and teachers to upskill, and  improve the level of care, management and support of the children in their day to day living activities at home and in school.

We work with schools to improve access to, and evidence-based practices for effectively reaching and teaching children and adolescents with disabilities and other special and exceptional needs;  and we represent the interest of children and families to policy-makers and at every level of society to promote social inclusion.
