Newlife is the UK’s largest children’s charity provider of specialist disability equipment, providing equipment such as wheelchairs, specialist beds, car seats and walking frames, either through grants or the Emergency Equipment Loan service, while the Nurse Helpline and Advocacy Service offer support to families when they need us most. Fantastic fun and development opportunities are also available through the loan of specialist toys within the charity’s Play Therapy Pod service, which can stimulate a child’s development through the power of play.
Without Newlife’s support thousands of disabled children, many of whom have reached crisis point would be living in pain, unsafe and unable to do the things that we all take for granted. The main consequence of this would inevitably mean that they would be denied the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Thousands of disabled and terminally ill children would go without essential equipment if it wasn’t for people just like you who choose to support Newlife. We are proud of our guarantee that 100% of all funds raised are spent on the needs of disabled and terminally ill children. Not a penny is spent on anything else. You can even choose to help a child in your region.
Take up a challenge today and you can change the life of a disabled child.

Mason has complex disabilities and was in dire need of a new specialist buggy so he could leave the house safely and comfortably. Mason is severely autistic, non-verbal, has a sensory processing disorder, dyspraxia, hypermobility and global development delay, meaning he often finds it difficult to cope when his usual routine is broken.
He’d grown too big for his buggy and the foot plate was broken putting him at danger of injury. This stopped Mason and his family from going out together, which meant his sisters Charlotte and Emily missed out too. In December, Newlife stepped in to help fund a new pushchair enabling Mason’s life the best it can possibly be.
