On our last visit to Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, Diane Price, Activity Coordinator told us:
"The computers are amazing and are getting well used by all the children, parents and carers. They all love the airplanes especially the flight simulator - it's absolutely amazing. The young people like to steer the plane and check the instruments/controls to see if they are flying straight and are on course for their destination.
It’s a bit like a holiday for them when they are here. With the Lifelites technology we help them to do lots of new things. It’s so different to what they can do normally."
We want to continue to give the children and young people at Bluebell Hospice more 'holidays' and with your help we can certainly do so.
Can you help us fundraise so we can go back to put many more smiles on the faces of the children that are cared for at the hospice?
We're still working closely with Bluebell Wood - we installed our last package there in 2011.
Lifelites provided a new package at Charlton Farm in 2012. We still need your help though - we never walk away from a hospice but do continue to provide technical support and training.
In 2012 we arrived at Chestnut Tree House with a bagful of assistive and specialist technology goodies. They haven't looked back since.
We hope our collaboration with Demelza on our Eyegaze pilot project will revolutionise the service we are able to provide to children in hospices across the UK and Ireland.
We hope to provide brand new assistive technology for the young people at this Claire House in 2020/21. Can you help us raise the funds?
This West Yorkshire children's hospice Martin House should receive a new package of assistive technology in 2020/21. We need your help to make it happen.
St Elizabeth is an adult hospice which provides Transition care for young adults from the age of fourteen.
We work with both the children and young adults at this Newcastle based hospice and last provided some equipment in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
