**Important Announcement: Closure of The Bobath Centre**

Dear Supporters, Funders, and Service Users,

It is with deep regret that we announce the closure of the Bobath Centre.

After careful consideration of our financial situation, we have reached the difficult decision to cease operations.

Despite our best efforts, ongoing financial challenges have made it impossible for us to sustain our services. The Board of Trustees has made the decision to close The National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre due to the lack of support from NHS England and other statutory agencies.

This decision was not taken lightly, and we understand the impact it will have on our community.

Closure details:

• Closure date: The National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre will cease operations on 31 May 2024.

• Transition support: We are committed to supporting our service users during this transition period, helping them access alternative sources of support where possible.

To those who use our services:

We want to thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey. Your resilience and trust have been truly inspiring, and it has been an honour to support you.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

We understand that this news will be upsetting, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. We are immensely grateful for the opportunity to have served our community and for the support we have received along the way.

To our supporters and funders:

We want to express our deepest gratitude for your support over the years. Your generosity has enabled us to make a real difference in the lives of many individuals and families.

Thank you for your understanding.

Bob Walder
Chair of Trustees
