Welcome to Newlife Foundation

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.

Funding & Success

Medical Research

Newlife Foundation funds pioneering work to improve child health, treatment and the knowledge to prevent disability. Medical research holds the key, we can only unlock the doors with sufficient funding to start to answer the 'why?', 'how?' and 'what next?' questions.
