We are delighted to announce that our charity of the year for 2018 is Bobath Scotland.
Our first challenge to raise money for Bobath Scotland will be the Dragon Boat Challenge, which takes place on 2 June 2018. To support us and help us reach our fundraising target, please visit our fundraising page.
Bobath Scotland is a Scottish charity devoted to improving the quality of life for children and adults with cerebral palsy. Bobath Scotland provides vital therapy at their Glasgow-based centre, supporting both the individual and their family/carers in a relaxed, non-clinical and fun environment. Bobath input enhances each person’s mobility, communication and independent living skills and thus their everyday quality of life. Every six hours a child is born who will be diagnosed with cerebral palsy. As the most common physical disability in childhood – affecting posture, movement, speech and vision - life can be challenging for people who are living with the condition.
We are therefore delighted and excited about the support that we can provide to this very worthy charity in the course of 2018.
We will keep you updated on the work that we do with the charity in the coming months, but if you have any questions about Bobath Scotland, or the work that it does, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we can put you in touch with them.
Stephanie Fraser, CEO of Bobath Scotland, had this to say about our new partnership:
"Bobath Scotland is delighted to be chosen as Just Employment Law’s charity of the year 2018. Bobath therapy can make a real difference to children and adults with cerebral palsy as they navigate the challenges of school, home and community with a lifelong disability. It’s focused on making the most of a child and parents’ abilities, and on what someone can do for themselves. None of this would be possible without the help of supporters like Just Employment Law.”
