Newlife is now the largest charitable provider of equipment for disabled children and on average supports over 2,500 disabled children and their families each year. As well as providing specialist disability equipment they offer advice through their nurse-led helpline, run a sensory toy loan service and undertake campaigning and advocacy to improve disabled children's wellbeing.
Newlife exists because right now, thousands of disabled and terminally ill children in the UK are living without the vital equipment they need. They help thousands of children across the UK who are disabled through childhood cancers, genetic illnesses, accidents, diseases and infections. Alongside dealing with their disability, the sad fact is that many children don’t have the specialist equipment they really need to help them through each day.
As a result, children are suffering needless pain, their health is worsening and they are missing out on life’s opportunities. Families are desperately trying to cope; dedicated parents lack support and many become injured trying to care without the right equipment. Newlife offers a life-line for families, providing life-changing or life-saving specialist equipment when and where it is needed.
From your very first game, you help Newlife raise vital funds that will support disabled children. Here are some examples of what your contribution could pay for to help those who need it most:
