Charity of the Year
Each year we support one charity as our charity of the year. We raise funds for the charity, primarily inside the office.This year’s charity is Stick ‘n’ Step.
Stick ‘n’ Step is a Merseyside charity that helps children aged 18 months-18 years with cerebral palsy achieve the greatest independence possible. Seventy children from across the North West and North Wales come to the centre in Wallasey to learn life skills that will help them lead more independent and fulfilling lives. The charity was formed in 2002 by a group of parents of children with cerebral palsy who wanted to provide their children and others with free conductive education. Since then hundreds of children have come through the doors. Some have learnt to sit up, hold a cup, and dress themselves while others have learnt to walk, run, and even play football. Along the way they have formed lifelong friendships and gained in confidence and self-esteem.
Parents who have received a diagnosis of cerebral palsy for their child will find the charity, usually through a Google search or word of mouth. Their children will be assessed by a senior member of staff and, if there is a place for them, will start attending twice-weekly sessions that are organised according to age and ability. The future is brighter not only for them, but for their families and communities as well.
