Mobility and sensory equipment. “Growing up my favourite story has always been ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar.’ When I got my powered wheelchair I felt like I had gone from being a caterpillar to as free as a butterfly.” – Tilly, Caudwell Children beneficiary
How We Help: – Bespoke multi-purpose powered wheelchairs – Specialised mobility buggies – Bespoke therapy tricycles – Specialised car seats – Sensory equipment
Why: – On average a family with a disabled child needs 5 pieces of specialist equipment to provide the basic level of care -There are an average of 100,000 disabled children waiting for appropriate mobility equipment in the UK – Wheelchairs which promote mobility and independence are rarely provided to children under 5 years of age – Without the provision of specialist equipment, further problems can develop, which may be more life-limiting and painful than their original condition
We need your help to: – Double annually the number of children helped by providing mobility and sensory equipment – Ensure that a child’s clinical, independence, social and mobility needs are met
