Just over 5 weeks into our renovations and the progress is startling!
Every day we see a change to the building, whether it’s the unearthing of beautiful brick work that’s been hidden for decades or creating the foundations for new innovations.
As of today we have steps in what will be our hydrotherapy pool in approximately 25 weeks’ time! An incredible resource that will bring a huge range of benefits to life-limited children and their families, such as pain relief, increased mobility and relaxation or sensory stimulation.
If you’ve not already seen it, check out our short video of the works below or visit our Facebook for more on the plans for our beloved building.
Thankfully our support services and activities are able to continue unaffected during the building works, which we’re grateful for as we are receiving new requests for help every week. In particular, our monthly get togethers for parents and carers are thriving. The Coffee Connect, Bereavement Support and Healing Hearts sessions provide a safe, welcoming and reliable environment for Mums and Dads to share, care and chat with others walking similar paths. It often takes bravery, courage and a leap of faith by parents to first join the groups but it is ALWAYS worth it and we feel very privileged to see, hear and feel the difference made by our peer support activities.
