Brainwave is a charity that works throughout the whole of the United Kingdom and Ireland and provides much-needed support to children with special needs and learning disabilities. The charity exists to help children with disabilities to increase their independence. This is achieved by aiming to improve mobility, communication skills and learning potential through a range of educational and physical therapies. Brainwave works with children who have a range of conditions including autism, cerebral palsy and genetic disorders such as Downs syndrome. The therapists working at Brainwave provide families with a unique therapy programme that is custom designed to suit their child’s needs. This encourages the children to unlock their full potential.
Brainwave Mission Statement
The charitable objectives of Brainwave are to support children with both physical and or cognitive disabilities. Brainwave works with families to deliver home based therapy and exercise programmes specialised for each child. The charity’s mission is to deliver the highest quality of therapy to an increasing number of children every year and to make it as easy as possible for children to benefit from the therapy. Brainwave’s vision is that all the children in the UK, regardless of their condition, should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and reap the benefits of appropriate therapy.
The 2.6 Challenge Campaign
Brainwave joined other charities across the UK in the biggest mass participation sports events across the country. The coronavirus outbreak has hugely impacted charities all over the world by the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events. The campaign, the 2.6 challenge, launched on the 26th of April – what should have been the date of the 40th annual London marathon. The London marathon raised £66.4 million for charities in 2019. Brainwave’s Fundraiser Nicky Evans stated that “this is an incredible opportunity for you to support Brainwave in a really fun, unique way”.
