Newlife Foundation become CECOPS Registered
CECOPS is delighted to announce that disabled children’s charity, Newlife Foundation, has become a Registered User of the Community Equipment Code of Practice.
Newlife Foundation is a charity which exists to provide disabled children with care, professionalism and a source of informed support for them, their families and their carers. Since 1991 the charity have been providing disabled children and their relatives or carers with loans, grant and equipment which can have many massive benefits including pain relief, more independence, and aiding mobility. The service and support they provide is second to none and has played a huge part in changing and improving the lives of many disabled children and their families.
Not only does the foundation supply disabled children with equipment, grants, and support, they also help fund vital medical research to help understand, prevent and treat conditions affecting children’s health.
By registering with the Code Newlife Foundation are expected to work to its principles, thereby demonstrating for example that the equipment they provide is of good quality, safe and delivered in a timely fashion.
Newlife Co-founder, Sheila Brown OBE, said:
“I believe the Code of Practice Scheme is vital if we are able to improve provision of community equipment. Adoption and implementation of this code will allow commissioners, providers and clinical professionals to improve quality of life, reduce pain, prevent conditions worsening, enable better care and allow adults and children with disabilities fair and reasonable access to the equipment they need to help them achieve.”
CECOPS CEO, Brian Donnelly, said:
“It is a real pleasure to have Newlife register with CECOPS. The service they provide to disabled children and their families is second to none and now they will have the badge to prove it!”
