This Christmas give a gift of Personal Protective Equipment.
Your support will help protect the children who come to Pace from the threat of Coronavirus. Please donate and help safeguard the future of our children.
The children who come to Pace are clinically vulnerable. Many of them have serious, underlying health issues, respiratory conditions and weakened immune systems meaning COVID 19, if contracted could be catastrophic.
So, whilst it may seem that the most simple, safest, and straightforward solution would be for them to shield from Coronavirus, the impact of staying at home and isolating could be equally as detrimental.
Failing to receive physiotherapy means many children will be left suffering in chronic pain. Some will start to lose their independence because they can no longer walk comfortably or move easily.
A lack of occupational therapy will mean that children lose their fine motor skills making it difficult for them to play with their toys or use the communication devices they need to speak.
Without speech and language therapy the children will find it hard to communicate, they will not be able to ask for help when they need it or tell anyone how they are feeling. The heightened risk of choking can make eating and drinking dangerous.
