As 2020 comes to an end, we are proud to be able to share an update on the successes and challenges facing Matilda, our Disabilities and Rehabilitation Manager and the young people supported by her.

Included in the successes are 10 clients with cerebral palsy who have achieved various goals including sitting unaided, crawling, standing with support, walking, speech improvements and helping with chores like washing up.

Across the 130 registered clients, eighty-six are showing signs of improvement, 41 no change and three are deteriorating.

Read the full 2020 Disabilities and Rehabilitation report for more information and below is a short video we put together to celebrate the project.
