We offer free weekly conductive education group sessions to children and young people from across the North West. Delivered from our specialised centres in Runcorn and Wallasey, the sessions are designed to help each child to reach their personal potential in terms of their confidence, mobility and independence.
Every child works towards their own set of personalised goals which are all designed to translate into movements, techniques and strategies that will help in real life. From moving around independently, to improving self-feeding, learning to use the toilet on their own and tying shoelaces – everything we do is designed to reduce each child’s dependency on other people, and to give them the best chances of living a full and independent life.
It costs £5,500 per child, per year to provide access to weekly or twice weekly Conductive Education sessions and in the region of £600,000 to deliver our services annually. We rely completely on the generosity of local people, grant-making trusts, communities and businesses like those based at Sci-Tech Daresbury to support the work we do. We want to ensure that all families in the North West of England, regardless of financial position, are able to access the support and services they need.
This is the 3rd year (2022) that we will be partnering with Sci-Tech Daresbury and during this time, we hope to achieve our target of raising £30,000. To help us reach our target we would like to engage with as many people as possible who work on campus at Sci-Tech Daresbury to take on a team-building activity, challenge or initiative and help raise money on our behalf.
