Transforming the lives of children with disabilities

At Pace, we pride ourselves on keeping the children, their families and our community who support them at the centre of all that we do. You, our wonderful supporters, are an essential part of the Pace community. Donating your time, money and enthusiasm make sure the children can access education, develop social skills, improve their self esteem and increase their independence.

You’re not only supporting the children but also helping their families. Your generosity gives them a sense of hope, the confidence to care for their child and the support network they need.

Understanding cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is an umbrella term for a type of sensory motor disorder (a form of physical disability) caused by damage to the immature or developing brain that occurs before, during or soon after the birth of the child. The type of cerebral palsy and how it affects a child depends on the size, location and timing of the brain damage.

Although there is no cure for cerebral palsy, with the right therapy a child’s brain can create new pathways around the damaged area, allowing them to develop new skills and overcome some of the challenges they face. Through more than 25 years of experience, Pace has learned that our tailored transdisciplinary approach can transform the lives of children with other sensory motor disorders, meaning together we can help even more children.

Parent testimonials

“Professionals at Pace have a great knowledge and experience of children with neuromotor disabilities. As a parent it is extremely reassuring to know that our children are in capable hands”.

“Before we found Pace we had ad hoc and reactive support from other health professionals and we felt isolated, lost and we did not feel that we were in a position to help our child the most and give him the greatest chance to progress. Since being involved with Pace we have learnt so many useful tips and techniques, ideas for games that weave therapy into them, had loans of equipment, and we have felt generally supported so that we can carry over their excellent sessions into our daily handling and playing with our child. We have felt less stressed and the pressure has been taken off us a little bit as we know that he is getting really good, consistent therapy and learning input each week”.

“Pace has made a world of difference to my child. She is happier, more content, more vocal and able to express her needs better. This leads to her being happier and therefore more settled. Her mobility skills have been helped immensely; she is now able to use a walker which we never thought possible”.

Pace has made a world of difference to my child. She is happier, more content, more vocal and able to express her needs better. This leads to her being happier and therefore more settled. Her mobility skills have been helped immensely; she is now able to use a walker which we never thought possible.

Pace has supported our son for many years. We are certain he would not have made the progress he has without their constant help, support and encouragement and specialist therapeutic input. The impact of Pace has been key to all our son has achieved.

Every day my son is pushed, challenged, and may come home from school exhausted. But everything that is delivered there is a specific programme just for him… and every bit is delivered with love. His potential and where he is at now, is beyond anything we were ever told, anything that we could have imagined and it is entirely down to Pace and the belief that they have in the child.

Now my daughter has found her feet. She loves being able to explore beyond what is around her. She is not just sat in a chair, she is allowed to move and explore and increase her independence.

Our daughter is treated as an individual, with a particular set of needs. Pace continues to push her and demand more from her every day. Her capabilities have far exceeded my limited expectations.
