Newlife: Free Equipment Now Available

Newlife: Free Equipment Now Available

The Newlifeable scheme run by Newlife Charity has quality refurbished specialist equipment ready and waiting to be delivered to UK children with disabilities or terminal illness.

Newlifeable launched in January 2014, offering a large selection of quality, clinically refurbished and certified equipment, all available through a grant for ‘priority delivery’ at no cost.

The equipment is available for all children with a disability up to their nineteenth birthday.

Equipment includes:  

• Specialist seating

• Manual wheelchairs

• Buggies

• Walking frames

• Assisted living aids

To view the current range of equipment and FAQ’s regarding this service, please visit Newlifeable's website.

If you cannot access the internet to view the range and know the name or type of equipment you are seeking, you can also call Newlife on 0800 902 0095 (free from UK mobiles & landlines).

Newlife welcomes contact direct from families.

They also want to hear from professionals if they know a child in need of specialist equipment – especially when they would probably not be able to get provision through the local statutory services.

Newlife can deliver anywhere in the UK, including Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

You must also include the website reference for each piece of equipment you are applying for.

Newlife is committed to ensuring that children and young adults with disabilities or terminal illness are able to get the right equipment at the right time.

Children like Archie have received essential equipment through Newlifeable.

The mum to two-year-old Archie, who has Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, added:

“It’s absolutely amazing. Archie doesn’t qualify for wheelchair services for another few months, so having the opportunity to get the right equipment when he really needs it has been great.”

To register your interest in any of these items, just call the Nurse Helpline on 0800 902 0095, Monday to Friday from 9.30am – 5.00pm (free from UK mobiles & landlines).
