How we are funded
We need to raise £1.5million each year to provide our service to children and their families. We receive 24% of this from statutory sources however the majority (76%) comes from donations, gifts in Wills, retail and fundraising activity. In other words we are very much dependent on support from people like you.
Why gifts in Wills are so important
Did you know that on average gifts in Wills fund 63 babies each year to have a vital early assessment and treatment appointment if they have, or are suspected of having cerebral palsy? The number of babies and their families needing our service is increasing each year. Please help us to be there for those babies yet to be born.
The impact we have
Last year, in 2018, we treated 343 children in Wales, supporting their families as well with our Family Support Service. The impact of our service is often best described by the families who come to us – ‘Following a block of specialist therapy at Bobath Wales, William was able to sit up on his own. Following a further block of therapy, he started crawling. William is now able to walk independently – he falls a lot and is very clumsy but he has exceeded all our expectations. The intensity, duration and expertise of Bobath therapy have produced astounding results.
We feel privileged to have had the help and support from Bobath Wales and are sure that William’s achievements are due to the skill of the therapists so early on in his life.’ Rebecca William’s Mum.
If the time is ever right
If the time is ever right for you to remember a charity in your Will please remember Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre Wales. Every gift – no matter the size – makes a difference. Even 1% (so those closest to you inherit 99%) or a modest sum of money will help provide for those babies yet to be born.
