Lifelites is a charity which gives life-limited and disabled children using hospice services the opportunities they wouldn't otherwise have, through the magic of assistive technology.
Covid-19 announcement: We support children and their families who have extraordinary challenges to face. The Lifelites team appreciates that currently with Covid-19, we all find ourselves in exceptional circumstances. Whilst we are not receiving any visitors into the office until further notice, we are trying our best to make it business as usual.
Support for your Lifelites equipment:
Donations: Please don’t forget that you can pay donations directly into our bank account. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for our bank details. We need your support more than ever to sustain our work for life-limited and disabled children through these difficult times. Thank you!
Lifelites donates specialist assistive technology packages for these children and young people to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, for as long as it is possible.
Thanks to our supporters, we are able to do this for over 10,000 children at every baby and children's hospice across the British Isles. So wherever you are, there will be a Lifelites assistive technology project for children in your area.
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 terminally ill 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 would like to say a big thank you to all our delegates coming from children's hospices across the British Isles. Thank you also to the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists and Inclusive Technology for their generous donations.
