Health and wellbeing

Funding level: £1,001 to £5,000

Description

Sophia's House aims is to improve the lives pf physically and mentally impaired children, by providing grants for private therapy and equipment not provided by the NHS.

Sophia's House is funded entirely by charitable and voluntary contributions. They are always wanting to improve the care and treatments they can offer. This grant would allow them to expand into the hugely beneficial area of Spider Therapy.

Spider Therapy is the simple name for Therasuit Method Intensive Program (sometimes called TMIP)
An intensive individualized therapy program that accelerates functional progress. The program uses the Therasuit (a soft canvas suit with bungee-like cords attached) and the Universal Exercise Unit (“Spider Cage”) to allow the child to learn new & correct patterns of movement through strengthening and functional skills practice.
The Therasuit Program is ideal for those looking to meet functional goals at an accelerated rate as compared to traditional therapy.

The suits cost around £1500 each and Sophia's House would like 2, with supporting equipment costing £2000, so £5000 in total.
