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.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Newlife for Paul's new Mygo system. For the first time ever he has been able to sit and have dinner with us at the table due to the height adjustable base. He loves the new seat and it will make a huge difference to his life.
Thank you so much for providing the stair climber for Mara - it makes it so much easier to get Mara up and downstairs safely and with dignity!
