About new life charity
Newlife provides grants for essential equipment such as: pain relieving beds, wheelchairs, communication aids, and much more.
Every day in the UK children become disabled, are diagnosed with life limiting conditions or become terminally ill. They now have more disabled children in the UK than ever before. These disabilities are often due to:
Birth defect conditions and malformations
Premature birth related conditions
Accidents and injury
Cancers and acquired disorders
The good news is that, thanks to medical research, technology and the skills of new life charity healthcare and welfare professions, they now routinely save the lives of babies and children who just a few years ago would have died. That’s wonderful news and but further research is needed, not only to continue to challenge loss of life but also to challenge the lasting effects of these conditions. That’s why Newlife funds vital medical research to help understand, prevent and treat such conditions. Without continued research we will not be able to improve child health and save children from facing loss of ability and inevitably loss of their lives.
So, they now save more lives, but sadly many of these babies and children go on to be affected by short or long term disability or illness, so tragically their lives are prematurely shortened as a result. This is when Newlife Nurses become the key support and contact point for families seeking to understand, adjust, prepare, and care for their child. The issues around children’s illness are complex, children are not ‘little adults’. Their families are often challenged to respond to these situations so they need a service that is on their side and one they can trust.
