Hydrotherapy for life threatened children

(Cambridgeshire)

Essential therapy for local children living with a life-threatening condition or disability, some of whom will be receiving end of life care. Hydrotherapy helps to alleviate pain, build strength in muscles and provides a fun and relaxing activity for children and their families. In turn, this helps promote the child’s best quality of life.

Our goals:

  • To have a therapy pool that is fit for purpose for local children who are living with a life threatening condition and/or who are receiving end of life care. Ensuring that valuable sessions in the pool do not need to be cancelled.
  • Regular and continuous access to therapy is very often difficult. Time together for children and their families in the pool for both therapeutic purposes and for enjoyment is priceless. All sessions will be supervised by staff.
  • Empowering families to improve their children's quality of life. Therapy will provide both emotional and practical support, helping reach more children and support those children and their families at an extremely difficult time.
£25k project Currently ranked in

How we will achieve our goals

A new boiler will ensure that the correct temperature is maintained in the pool. Which in turn will ensure that therapy sessions are not cancelled. A section of the pool flooring will be replaced with non slip materials to ensure safety. Purchase of a new dehumidifier to ensure the pool area is comfortable for children, their families and staff.

Where the money will go

Enabling many more local children, babies and young people with life threatening conditions to spend quality time in the pool for both therapeutic purposes and enjoyment. For many, the warmth and support of the water provides them with their only opportunity to move. Improving childrens quality of life at an unimaginably difficult time.
