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.

Newlife’s grant gave us peace of mind to ensure the best treatment for our child. Thank you so much, we can keep our sanity. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Newlife.
The provision of this wheelchair allows him to access all aspects of life, acedemic and social with a degree of independence. He is Acorns Young Ambassador and this wheelchair allows him to be so pro active. All of the Newlife people are working together; the application was so straightforward and much quicker than we expected.
The design of the chair makes it much easier for him to propel himself, and the powered wheels mean he can propel further without getting tired. The kids at school think it looks cool too! He loves it - thank you so much! We have been amazed at how helpful you have all been, and how quickly everything has been sorted out.
