The Children's Trust Tadworth
The Children's Trust Tadworth charity provides care, education, therapy and rehabilitation to children with multiple disabilities, complex health needs and acquired brain injury.
Helping countless disabled children to receive the best possible care, therapy, education and rehabilitation for 25 years.
Twenty-five years ago a new charity took over responsibility for Tadworth Court Children's Hospital, the former country branch of Great Ormond Street Hospital. The combination of services offered by The Children's Trust is unique. We help families from across the UK through rehabilitation and therapy services for children with acquired brain injury. We provide special education for children and young people with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and complex health needs.
Nursing and Medical Care
Expert nursing and medical care is provided in the form of transitional care from hospital to home for children who are technology dependent, residential short breaks, short break care delivered at home, continuing residential care, residential or home-based palliative care, including emergency palliative care, a holiday club at Tadworth for local disabled children.
Information and Support Services
Information, research and support is provided to families and professionals as well as training and education. Research into better treatments and outcomes for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs is ongoing and we believe that giving disabled children and their families a greater public voice is of great importance.
At the heart of our efforts has been the belief that all children deserve to be valued, happy and safe, with ample opportunities for play, learning and fulfilment, regardless of their disability.
Families play a vital role at The Children's Trust, whether it is a parent staying on-site for the first weeks of their child's rehabilitation programme, or a mum or dad sitting as a parent representative on St Margaret's School's Board of Governors.
We employ over 400 staff, including the doctors, therapists, teachers, nurses and care staff who work directly with the children, as well as the management, administration and fundraising teams who manage the smooth running of the charity. Each has played their part in ensuring the Trust develops and grows to meet the needs of children and families.
The Children's Trust has been recognised amongst healthcare and special education professionals as offering the very best services for disabled children. Our Community Support Service for children with acquired brain injuries is an example of how, in partnership with these professionals, we are constantly shaping our services to meet children's needs as effectively as possible.
Fundraising is a huge part of what we do at The Children's Trust. Support from companies is really important to us and has enabled us to improve our facilities and expand our services. In 2009 our supporters rose to the challenge of funding our biggest ever project, the new residential rehabilitation centre. The fantastic new facility has been made possible by many generous donors. This is just one of the many projects in place to help better the service and care we provide. So many people work hard to raise the funds we need and each and every one of them makes a difference.
We would not be able to manage without the contribution of dedicated and hard-working volunteers. Over 350 people give their valuable time (more than 65,000 hours in 2009), to help all areas of our work!
Please contact us to find out more about The Children's Trust, to get involved in our fundraising projects or to volunteer some of your time to help us along the way.
