Play Therapy Pods

Free loan of specialist toys

Newlife offers the free loan of specialist toys to families who have disabled and terminally ill children.

The Play Therapy Pods are self-contained and are delivered direct to the family's door.

There are different categories which can be chosen according to the child's age, their physical and learning abilities and medical needs. Children learn about the world around them through play, and families can often learn a lot about their child’s needs through use of specialist toys. They can also encourage learning, improve relaxation, give enjoyment and distract from pain.
