Our Nurses support families, our researchers work to improve children’s health, our dedicated team campaign for a fairer deal and our volunteers and supporters know that 100% of every penny they donate or fundraise will be used for equipment to change a child’s life.
Childhood cancers, birth defects, accidents, diseases and infections can all cause our precious babies, children, and young people to face lifelong challenges. It happens to dozens of children and their families every day.
Newlife exists because if it was your child, you would want the best for them and that’s what we are working for every day.
There are now around one million disabled and terminally ill children in the UK. Thousands of them rely on Newlife to get the equipment they need, equipment that has often been refused by the statutory services or the delays in provision mean that the child will suffer unnecessarily. Newlife runs the only fast track equipment services in the UK helping those children in urgent need.
When the chair was delivered Laina was left alone to get accustomed to the chair. After some time of being very quiet, her grandad went to see if she was alright and he found she had raised herself up and was looking in all the wall cupboards in the kitchen as she had never been able to reach them before. The chair has given Laina increased independence. Allowed her to join her sister and friends in the kitchen to bake as she can now reach the higher surface heights. She will be allowed to take the chair into her new secondary school in September.
