Launched in November 2018, Bobath Scotland is delighted to be NHS Credit Union's Charity of the Year in partnership with Penumbra.
As a small charity, partnerships like these can make an important impact on the services available for children and adults with cerebral palsy. The partnership will involve all sorts of activities from baking to cycling and a host of staff ideas.
NHS Credit Union will be raising money to help ensure families living with CP can get the help they need, when they need it. Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition that affects muscle control and movement, it can make everyday life more difficult. This means daily activities like walking, talking, and sitting up are affected or impossible.
'It is therapy, but they do it through play, so once they got to know my son they tried to build the therapy session round things that he would like. Coming to Bobath, I learnt how to position him, how to dress him, how to move him, how to involve him in family life. I felt beforehand I was just getting through day by day, whereas going to Bobath helped me actively get him to do physio through his play. Once I got some basic ideas I was like, “Oh! I could do this in the house with another toy we have”.
Bobath Scotland has specially trained occupational, speech and language, and physiotherapists who work with each person to make the most of their skills and abilities.
