CPotential Trust, a charity that provides support to children with cerebral palsy, were delighted to be awarded a grant of £19,500.
Every year 1,800 children are diagnosed with cerebral palsy in the UK. It is the most common physical disability in childhood affecting movement and sensory development, such as the inability to walk, talk or eat. As a response to this, the charity has launched a new therapy service to complement their existing provision.
Our donation enabled the charity to provide 'Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation' care to children with Cerebral Palsy. This innovative therapy uses electrical pulses to help muscles contract, aiding the movement of children’s limbs and improving their overall strength to help them move independently.
Brett Parker, CPotential Trust CEO said, "This generous grant from the Morrisons Foundation means CPotential can offer children with cerebral palsy potentially life changing therapies. Helping them to become more independent and achieve the best they can with their lives."
