Bobath Scotland was founded in 1995 by a group of parents who fundraised and campaigned tirelessly to bring the service to Scotland – previously, they had been forced to make the journey to London so their children could access Bobath treatment.
Since then, the charity has grown and developed, both in the services that we can provide and the number of people we are able to help. The charity has moved several times in its history, and in November 2009, we settled down in our permanent home in Port Dundas, close to Glasgow city centre. The new location, in a specially-adapted therapy building, has proved to be very beneficial for the children and families we help, and we have continued to adapt the building as needed, installing a long-awaited therapy kitchen in the summer of 2011. In April 2012 we began our adult service which offers either intensive or regular therapy to adults with cerebral palsy. We have developed our training programme and continue to look at the services we offer, and in recent years have secured funding to offer a wider range of services, such as the Right Start project, which allows us to work in areas outside Glasgow to deliver therapy and training.
