Service description:
Many people assume that a child or young person with a disability would automatically receive the equipment they need. Sadly, this is not the case.

Many families are unable to get the help they need from local health authorities for major items related to their child’s disabilities such as specialised mobility equipment. This means that because of budget constraints or delays, many families have no alternative but to purchase the items themselves, if they can afford it.

This is where Children Today can help. We provide specialised equipment to improve, assist and enhance the lives of children and young people with disabilities.

Specialised equipment and aids enable disabled children and young people to experience the everyday things that many of us may take for granted, often for the first time in their lives. Whether it’s a walking frame to enable them to take their first steps outside or a powered wheelchair enabling them to join their family on a walk, it can literally change their life overnight.

We are also working to raise awareness of the need of these children so that in the future they get the support they need.
