Our Service during Covid19

In line with Government guidance to avoid non-essential contact, we took the decision to suspend our face to face service for all families as of 17th March.  We have been working hard to continue to provide support to our families at home so that their children do not miss out on our help during this period.

"Yesterday's session was amazing; Aya and us enjoyed it a lot.  Thanks very much for your huge support to us.  Looking forward for next week."

"Please do pass on that it was a great session earlier.  Both Cyrus and I got a lot out of it and he was the tiredest I've seen him for a week afterwards, which is a good sign! Really very grateful to you for arranging."

More about our Service Offering during this COVID-10 shutdown:
  • We are now providing weekly video Conductive Education based one-to-one sessions for individual families via Zoom.
  • We are sharing exercises that our parents can do with their children at home to carry on working on movement, muscle control and posture and that will help them towards their individual learning goals.
  • We are providing fun ideas and activities for our children to do. 

We are busy planning to welcome back families to our Centre in Cuckfield in September following strict Government Covid19 guidelines. We will continue to offer virtual sessions so that families can join in at home.

Like so many registered charities now, due to the Covid-19 crisis, we had to cancel a lot of our fundraising events in the coming months, which means that we have missed out on the vital funds these events would have raised for us. As we are not eligible for any statutory funding and as the Government has made no specific provision to help the charitable sector during this crisis, we really do need to call upon our friends and supporters to lend a hand. 

 You can help and support us by making a donation. Please share this and donate if you can. We need your support more than ever. 

Virtual fundraising is another great way to support our Charity:
  • Donate with each purchase you make via Amazon Smile, Easy Fundraising or Give As You Live when you buy online. 
  • Donate your coffee, lunch, pint or commute money or whatever else you have not been spending on to via our Just Giving page 
  • Become a Facebook Birthday fundraiser for Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity.
  • Challenge yourself and get your friends and family to sponsor you - run a treadmill or garden marathon, climb the equivalent of Snowdon on your stairs, organise a bake off challenge or run your own quiz night.
