Shuhaney’s Story

Shuhaney has Cerebral Palsy and is unable to walk independently – often requiring additional support with some daily tasks. Her mum Jaya applied to Caudwell Children to see if the charity could help provide Shuhaney with the equipment she needs.

Your donation will go towards funding:

Specialist Wheelchairs

Multi Sensory Equipment

Specialist Sports Equipment

Therapy Tricycles

Buggies, Car seats & Harnesses

Specialist equipment can cost up to 100 times more than its non-disabled equivilant.

We’ve been working with parents and carers to highlight long-term issues that too often prevent disabled children from accessing the services, equipment, therapies and treatment they need.

Our research shows that things are getting worse:

All children deserve an opportunity to participate in sport for their physical health and mental wellbeing. However, access to sports facilities is not equal. Specialist sport equipment can cost up to 100 times more than its non-disabled equivalent.

Our Equipment Appeal aims to address this imbalance. Your donation towards can help change a child’s life.
