Disabled children have been at the heart of the charity since 1991. Since that time we have become, through our work, the specialists for special children. Their needs and the needs of their families and carers, their health and their voices are all central to the work of the charity. Thankfully more babies and children survive conditions, accidents, infections and cancers, we see more children live through these experiences and therefore widened our remit to include all children with significant disabilities.
However as a result many go on to face both short term and enduring disability. Others will live with their life expectance limited, while tragically others children become terminally ill. Newlife exists to respond to all these children with care, professionalism and determination and to provide informed support to their families and carers.

Words cannot express how life changing the safespace has been for Megan and all the family. Megan has slept all night everynight since having the safespace. Megan feels secure and enjoys being in her own space. Parents no longer have to get up several times each night to check on Megan, so are no longer deprived of sleep enabling them to cope much better during the daytime.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Newlife for Paul's new Mygo system. For the first time ever he has been able to sit and have dinner with us at the table due to the height adjustable base. He loves the new seat and it will make a huge difference to his life.
Thank you for my new car seat. It was ten out of ten - fabulous. It feels comfy and I give it a double thumbs up!
