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.
However as a result many go on to face both short term and enduring disability. Others will live with their life expectance limited, while tragically others children become terminally ill. Newlife exists to respond to all these children with care, professionalism and determination and to provide informed support to their families and carers.

I just wanted to send you a "big thank you" for funding my "funky" new wheelchair. The wheelchair has made a big difference to my independence, no-one can push me - no handles!!!
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Newlife for Paul's new Mygo system. For the first time ever he has been able to sit and have dinner with us at the table due to the height adjustable base. He loves the new seat and it will make a huge difference to his life.
This chair has already changed our lives even though we have only had it a couple of weeks. Last week we were able to take Emily out to the zoo during half term and because of the lie feature on the wheelchair we were able to take her into the disabled toilets to change and see to her cares, something we have never before been able to do, it was always a case of doing Emily's care in the boot of the car; very uncivilised !! The moulded seat is so supportive and comfortable and Emily just loves it. Thank you so much.
