For twenty-five years, providing specialist intensive therapy using the Bobath concept has been at the heart of what we do.

Alongside our individual therapy for both children and adults, we bring the CP community together through organising group activities for a range of ages and stages, and work to share CP-specific information both online and face-to-face.

CALLING 999

A new campaign launched by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) wants to inform people of the Silent Solution system, which could ultimately be lifesaving.

The Silent Solution system enables a person making a 999 call from a mobile, who is too scared to make a noise, to press 55 when prompted by an automated system. If they press 55, it will inform police they are in a genuine emergency, and they can then attend the scene.
