Better Start is open to children with cerebral palsy age 2-14, with places funded by National Lottery Community Fund available for those living in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde health board area. This includes families from: East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow City, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire.
We will be able to see a number of children from other areas if they are a strong fit for the programme, with support from other funders.
The project is fully-funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and others funders, so is free for families taking part.
What is Better Start?
Children and their families will work with our team of specialist therapists over the course of a number of sessions.
Therapists will support each child and their family to solve everyday problems – daily activities or things the child might find challenging because of their cerebral palsy.
Sessions will be personalised and tailored to suit each child’s individual needs, and those of the wider family and support network.
The aim is to ensure each child participating in Better Start becomes better connected and confident within their own family and school community, and feel more able to take control of their lives.
Sessions will also support families to help them know how best to support and enable their child to achieve to the best of their ability.
