Lifelites is the charity which gives life-limited and disabled children using hospice services across the British Isles the chance to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, through the magic of assistive technology.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked with our children’s hospice service partners to continue to provide equipment and support for the children they care for.

Here are Lifelites patrons Dame Esther Rantzen DBE and Sarah Ezekiel to tell you more about Lifelites work:
This month we've been visiting children's hospices across the British Isles to drop off donations, we've also been gearing up for a month of magical Jingle Jam fundraising.
Lifelites is seeking a volunteer (or group of volunteers) to raise funds for the work we do helping life-limited and disabled children using hospices services by managing the Lifelites online Ebay charity shop.
John Donoghue is a dedicated Lifelites Benefactor. He shared with us his very moving personal story about his daughter's health and the reason he decided to become a benefactor, and make a regular monthly gift to Lifelites.
Derian House Children's Hospice in Lancashire wrote a letter to Lifelites, telling us about scenarios where they've used some our Lifelites donated technology, such as the Mobile Magic Carpet, our accessible gaming equipment, and the GoPro, to create memories that last beyond a lifetime.
We know that the technology and services that we provide can change a child’s life. It gives children in hospices the opportunity to do so many things that they never thought possible, such as paint a picture, create music, play a game, or communicate with their family.
We’d like to introduce you to some of the children who have used the Lifelites technology, and the impact it has had on their short lives.
Lifelites aims to harness the power of technology by donating a wide variety of assistive and inclusive equipment to enhance the lives of life-limited and disabled children using hospice services.
For these children with complex cognitive and physical impairments, this technology is quite simply magical. It gives them opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have to join in with the world around them, irrespective of their disabilities.
Providing these opportunities is only possible because of the donations that Lifelites receives.
We have two new additions to our magical technology package! Click below to learn more about the Tilt Table and the PODs Sensory Tent!
