We are delighted to announce that we have been chosen as ‘project of the month,’ for October, by the Tees Valley Community Foundation and have been given a financial contribution to our running costs.
It is wonderful to have the important work we are doing acknowledged as ‘exceeding expectations’ and receive £1000 to further support our work.
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
"Rehabilitation interventions can lead to positive outcomes for children and their families if delivered in the familiar home environment and applied to everyday situations"
"Different 'experts' involved in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation come from different organisational cultures which causes conflict and has a negative effect on the outcomes for the child."
"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"Positive and coordinated neuro-rehab interventions for children and young people is proven to bring health improvements; improve independence; reduces the need for sheltered living; decreases vulnerability; decreases drop-out rates in schools; decreases youth offending"
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we deliver neuro-rehab services to children and young people"
