About Newlife

For more than 30 years, Newlife has been here to make sure disabled and terminally ill children get the chance to thrive and enjoy the best quality of life possible. We provide life-changing specialist disability equipment as grants and loans to thousands of children each year, as well as essential support to families through our free Nurse Helpline. As the UK’s only charity providing emergency equipment loans to disabled children who urgently need help, we offer a lifeline to those children and their families who just cannot wait.

Newlife supports adults with additional needs with volunteering and employment opportunities, providing a means for career development.

Through pioneering research, we have forged vital advances in medical science.‚Äč And through advocacy and campaigning, we have given disabled children a voice, even being instrumental in changing laws for the benefit of the families we serve.

But there’s still more to do. There are currently around 1.7 million children with disabilities in the UK, and more than 700,000 are living without the equipment and support they need.
