Welcome to Potential Kids

Potential Kids is an award winning charity based in Welwyn/Hatfield which provides learning, social and sports opportunities to Neurodivergent children / young people (Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Tourette Syndrome amongst other conditions).

Our Vision

To nurture and embrace neurodiversity, whilst supporting our community to reach their potential.

Our Mission

To be inclusive, promote confidence, increase self-esteem and give a sense of belonging to a community that understands neurodiversity.

About Our Founder

Potential Kids was founded by Angela Gaughan, a mum to an autistic son who realised that there was a great need for projects like this. She knows how hard it was to access activities for her son and wanted to make a difference by providing local support which encouraged and enabled our young people to learn, grow and achieve.

She is very proud to have some amazing volunteers, professionals and local organisations supporting her on this journey.

Our community feedback!


S.T.E.A.M - October 2023

"Great facilities in the hub for neurodivergent kids.
The garden is also an amazing space
Both offer space for neurodivergent kids to be themselves "





We love all PK sessions as parents we are so well supported and it’s a relaxed environment for our children to be accepted and enjoy a whole range of exciting activities


Minecraft Sessions, Trampolining, Youth Group - September 2023

PK kids activities are great for my boys as they can relax and be themselves with other like-minded kids. The youth group is also great in terms of them being independent without parents.
The Trampolining - We love how welcoming and friendly the PK team are - its great to mix with other PK families who have an understanding. We really appreciate the different groups that are being run.



Coming here really helps with my daughter's mental health. PK is one of the few activities that she will leave the house for. Thank you!
