Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre Wales is extremely grateful for the regular support from many grant-making bodies throughout the UK; which help to keep the Centre open.
If you would like further information about how your charitable trust can make a difference to children in Wales who have cerebral palsy please call Emma Brooks on 029 20522600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Many charitable trusts are experiencing an increase in applications, in the light of the current financial climate and a corresponding reduction in investment returns. So we are particularly grateful for the support of several trusts and foundations for their generous donations.
Travelling across the beautiful mountainous country of Wales can be a logistical nightmare for families with children needing to access Bobath’s Centre in Cardiff. So we are delighted that The Freemasons’ Grand Charity have granted support to enable us to provide crucial outreach Bobath therapy sessions for children living in North Wales.
October saw the launch of our Better Start – Better Futures initiative, aiming to ensure that babies under the age of two and a half receive therapy sessions as early as possible in their young lives. Warm thanks to the Cecil Rosen Charitable Trust, Joseph Strong Fraser Trust, D M Thomas Foundation The Hospital Saturday Fund and Persimmon Homes EastWales for their generous support towards this project.
The role of our Child & Family Support Co-ordinator is invaluable, providing help, support and guidance to families coping with the challenges of bringing up a child with cerebral palsy and we are grateful to The Steel Charitable Trust for helping us to continue to sustain this important role.
The Hedley Foundation and Big Lottery Awards for All have contributed to specialist toys for use in therapy and double glazed windows in our therapy rooms respectively, ensuring that therapy experiences are fun, educational and, most importantly, warm and dry for the children.
Through the generosity of several trusts and foundations, some that have funded us for the first time, we have been able to purchase some Gaze Viewer software; which will help our therapists understand a child’s physical capabilities, cognitive understanding and use of their eyes when using the Eye Gaze technology. We are very grateful to the National Children’s Foundation, Crackerjacks Children’s Trust, and Western Power Distribution for making these purchases possible. We are extremely grateful to the People’s Postcode Trust whose support has allowed us to purchase an Akka Mobility Platform, an ingenious electronic device which enables those children who are wheelchair users explore the world around them independently.
Our ‘My Best Life’ project provides single sessions of therapy to help reduce the waiting time for young children to receive vital treatment when they need it most. The sessions are also there for children who are experiencing long gaps between treatment. Thank you to the Eric Sparkes Charitable Trust, The Laspen Trust, the Gwendoline & Margaret Davies Charity and the Garfield Weston Foundation for supporting this project.
We continue to receive invaluable funding from The Henry Smith Charity towards our work in Clinical Effectiveness and from the Moondance Foundation towards provison of specialist therapy.
