Newlife Grants help provide hundreds of pieces of vital equipment every year to children all around the UK. Wheelchairs and walkers aid mobility, specialist beds and car seats keep children safe while communication aids give them a voice. The range of equipment is vast and Newlife ensures that the right piece of equipment is provided at the right time, fast tracking grant applications when a child’s need is urgent – for example when a child can’t leave hospital without a specialist buggy.
EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT LOANS
Emergency Equipment Loans offer a quick response service for families of life-limited and terminally ill children and those whose safety is at immediate risk because of the lack of appropriate equipment. Newlife aims to get wheelchairs, buggies, beds, seating and portable hoists delivered and installed in families’ homes within 72 hours of a child’s relevant health professional contacting the charity.
PLAY THERAPY PODS
Toys have an important role in the development of every child. Yet specialist therapeutic toys for children with complex needs are often hard to find and definitely more expensive. As well as benefitting development, there is a vital emotional aspect to playing – barriers are broken and relationships strengthened. Newlife has almost 400 specialist toy pods for children of different ages and needs and has made around 2,600 loans.
Watching your baby grow is a remarkable experience – but when the future is uncertain it becomes all the more precious. To support families facing the unthinkable, Newlife offers Comfort Capsules to help make memories they can treasure forever. Put together with the help of an expert team, each capsule contains carefully chosen items such as a cuddly toy, hand print maker, camera and digital photo frame.
