MORE THAN WORDS CHARITY

Home: Welcome

ABOUT OUR CHARITY

More Than Words Charity was founded by Paul and Hannah Hughes after being inspired by their daughter Gracie. Gracie has an undiagnosed genetic disorder which has presented her with several difficulties. However, despite Gracie's challenges she continues to prove to medical professionals that with the right support anything is possible, and Hannah and Paul have used Gracie's determination to focus their negative energy on something positive.


One of Gracie’s daily hurdles was her inability to communicate verbally, which caused her considerable frustration when trying to interact with her friends and family. As a family they worked hard to independently introduce signing with Gracie to which they saw an extremely positive result.

One of the hurdles that Gracie's parents encountered was that Gracie’s disorder did not ‘FIT IN A BOX’.  This made it difficult for the family to access the right support for Gracie.  It was also extremely frustrating as they knew that access to certain services would be really beneficial for Gracie’s development.  The longer the family continued on their journey they found that the services for disabled children in Kent were few and far between.  They felt that if these services were easily accessible to children it could make a huge difference to not only the child’s life but also the family. 

It was at this point More Than Words was born with the aim to help as many families as possible regardless of their disability.
