DSO Fundraiser

Caudwell Children

We’re urging parents or guardians across the UK to get in contact with us to apply for specialist equipment funding! 💫

The funding is available for disabled children and young people up to the age of 19. We’ve accessed funding from a number of grant bodies and trusts that will enable us to supply 70%-80% of the cost of the equipment, including powered wheelchairs, buggies, rain covers, therapy tricycles, specialist car seats, car harnesses and multi-sensory equipment.

With powerchairs costing over £20,000, tricycles up to £2,000, and sensory equipment costing upwards of £1,500 or more, the support could be the difference between children getting the equipment they need! 👏🏻

We want to hear from families across the UK whose gross household income is less than £45,000, excluding benefits. It’s a two stage application process and you can apply online or you can request an application form to be sent to you in the post. Once the supporting documents are returned decisions on application are usually made between 4-6 weeks.

Also if families cannot cover the rest of the balance we can point you in the direction of other agencies or charities who may support you with the rest!

To apply ring 0345 300 1348 or email: charity@caudwellchildren.com

You can find out more about our full range of services here: https://www.caudwellchildren.com/services/

Video on Child Drug Exploitation for parents

Short video for teenagers & parents explaining how criminals are exploiting children in Oxfordshire
The Family Solutions team in Witney is made up of the Early Help team and the Statutory team. Together we support families in West Oxfordshire who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties. Over the past two years we have been increasingly concerned about a number of young people who are being exploited, or are at risk of being exploited, in connection with selling drugs. We have been working closely with schools and the Thames Valley Police neighbourhood teams to identify young people early and provide the right help. It is an area of work that we are still developing.
As part of this work we have started holding ‘get togethers’ for parents who are concerned that their children may be involved in drug exploitation. This is a chance for us to listen to their struggles, provide some advice and for them to support one another. We hope that by linking parents up they will be in a better position to keep their children safe. We have been delivering this group jointly with our colleagues in the neighbourhood police team. We put the video together as a way of explaining the issue to parents who have not been part of the group. We hope that it will also be a useful tool when working with young people who are at risk of exploitation.
We showed it to our parents group who gave good feedback; one parent said “I wish I had seen this two years ago”. Another, who we have recently started working with, acknowledged that they felt really worried for their child after watching it as it made sense of his behaviour.
