These are just some of the organisations that we turn to for help, advice and guidance.
Please let us know if there are any others that you think should be added here.
Our daughter Neave has cerebral palsy and goes to Legacy Rainbow House for conductive therapy. This is specialist therapy for brain injured kids and makes a huge difference to developing and maximising their potential. Rainbow House helps children with physical disabilities between the age of 3 months – 16 years.
Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice provides respite and palliative care for babies aged 0-5 with life limiting or life threatening conditions. They make no charge to parents/carers and so the annual running costs (in excess of £1,300,000) must be raised solely through fundraising initiatives and donations.
