The National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre in Watford has welcomed funding from a local councillor.
Hertfordshire county councillor Stephen Cavinder has bestowed a grant of £819 to help pay for a PAL Leckey chair, which is a low-support seat for children who require minimal physical support in sitting. The chair is size adjustable and designed for use by children between the ages of four and 10.
The centre provides therapy and support to children and adults across Hertfordshire, and via online services across England.
Bobath provides hands-on therapy to support posture, promote movement, and manage pain, thus enabling its service users to carry out daily tasks such as getting dressed.
Cllr Cavinder said: “The dedicated team at the National Bobath Centre empowers individuals of all ages living with cerebral palsy to achieve their goals and lead fulfilling lives. I’m pleased that this grant is being used for the purchase of a purpose-built chair which will benefit all children who visit the centre for therapy or welcome sessions.”
