Newlife exists because if it was your child, you would want the very best for them

Latest Newlife News


Six-year-old Riley Williams has Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy – he has spent his entire life without a comfortable place to sit. Riley has to lie on the floor of the family’s living room in order to get some respite from the confines of his wheelchair because his local statutory services won’t fund a specialist seat that will keep him comfortable and supported.

 Riley has a curve in his spine which is likely to worsen without proper support, so lying on the floor just to get some comfort is far from ideal. His mum, Kate, who was faced with having to find the £2,166 needed to buy Riley his seat, said: “Riley’s epilepsy has totally changed his personality. The only place he feels calm is in his sensory room, but without a comfortable chair he can only spend a short amount of time there.

 “There is nowhere near enough support out there for families with disabled children. Our Occupational Therapist has been great but we were told to contact Newlife directly because there isn’t the funding available for comfortable seating.”

 Newlife’s head of Charity Operations, Stephen Morgan, said: “We really want to help change Riley's life, and those of the other children in Cheshire who need our help. We are calling on local people groups, clubs and companies to get involved, donate or fundraise for Newlife so that these children can get what they need. All Riley wants is to be comfortable – is that too much to ask?”
