More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

Newlife gives practical support for disabled children throughout the UK, cares for the carers, funds medical research, creates awareness and campaigns for change.

Our services are led by professional Nurses and our record in funding research is excellent. We give equipment grants quickly and with the child’s needs uppermost in our minds. Our awareness raising and campaigns put children and their families first in people and decision maker’s minds. We keep costs low and we are one of the few charities who openly give donors the chance to ensure 100% of their donation or fundraising reaches what they want to fund, with no admin costs taken out.

We are a very practical charity so much of the work we do affects the real life daily experiences of families and children. We receive no government funding and so we are very grateful to those who support us.
