Bobath Centre Secures 3-Year Funding Award from City Bridge Trust
The National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded a substantial three-year grant from City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s charity funder, committed to creating a fairer London for all its residents. The grant will be instrumental in supporting the charity’s neurotherapy services, to people with physical disabilities and improving the lives of people with cerebral palsy
The grant from City Bridge Trust will enable the National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre to expand its services locally, and in the boroughs of Hillingdon, Harrow, Barnet and Enfield.
Commenting on the award, Madeleine Cassidy, CEO of The National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre, stated, “We are grateful to City Bridge Trust for the grant which will have a profound impact on the lives of our community with cerebral palsy. This funding will enable us to further our vital work in supporting people of all ages with cerebral palsy and their families, empowering them to lead fulfilling and independent lives. The team at The Bobath Centre look forward to expanding our programmes and collaborating with City Bridge Trust to create lasting change.”
City Bridge Trust’s support for the charity’s neurotherapy services is particularly welcome, since neurotherapy is not available to most people via the NHS. The project will deliver specialist neuro-Physical, Occupational and Speech and Language therapy to at least 40 people over the next three years. Anyone who thinks they might benefit is very welcome to apply. The Centre already offers free welcome sessions and no referral is required https://bobath.org.uk/bobath-therapy/support-for-cp-community/welcome-session/

City Bridge Trust Chairman Giles Shilson said: “We’re delighted to be able to support the National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre to expand its neurotherapy service. This funding will open up access to neurotherapy, which can have a really significant effect in improving quality of life, to many more people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to receive it, making a positive and lasting difference to their lives and those of their families.”
