Just wanted to inform members that a contact of mine has informed me that Cerebra have a fair bit of money left in there budget this year and are able to consider more applications than normal.

Cerebra are able to offer you assistance if your child:

•Does the child have a brain injury, neurological disorder, mental disability or developmental problem?
•Is the child aged 16 or under?
•Is the equipment or resource that would benefit the child not available from statutory agencies like the social services or the NHS?
•Will the equipment or resource improve the child's quality of life?

Things they will fund include:

•Specialist car seats
•Power wheelchairs
•Therapies (please check if your therapy is one we are able to fund)
•Trampolines
•Sensory toys∞
•Tricycles and quadricycles
•Digital drum kits
Touch screen computers
Looking for sensory toys at affordable prices then look no further

ooh i'd LOVE a touch screen computer for Matthew, he uses one at school. I wouldn't know what kind of thing they do though, or where to look? Is it similar to family fund where it comes from a specific place?

You apply for a grant. I asked about a bike for my son and they sent me the application form. Go onto the website and email them what you are after. The bike for my son is specifically for him he gets measured up and he will need support around his waist + a parent handle.

I would have asked for a bike as I've been after one for ages, but managed to get one from ebay a couple of weeks ago for £100! I was so chuffed, as its ideal for him!
