Bobath Scotland has published its latest round-up of action and activity for the period 2018/19.
The Annual Review sets out what the charity has achieved between 1 April 2018 – 31 March 2019.
Highlights from the year include:
- More children and adults accessed our services in 2018/19 than over the previous 12 months.
- The Cerebral Palsy Scotland Conference in 2018 was attended by more people than ever before.
- We demonstrated our commitment to supporting the development of specialist knowledge of cerebral palsy in Scotland through funding and delivering training for NHS therapists.
- We have begun work to embed mental health and psychological support within our core therapy service.
- Our outreach programme has helped to ensure that people across Scotland can access our services.
The Review also sets out the charity’s key aims for 2019/20 as well as interviews with people who have benefitted from Bobath’s services, Bobath therapists, health professionals and donors.
Commenting on the Annual Review Bobath Scotland CEO, Stephanie Fraser, said:
“We are very proud of Bobath Scotland’s achievements this year and how the charity has responded in a range of ways to meet the needs of people with cerebral palsy.
“Around 83% of our income over 2018/19 came from our own fundraising. We could not exist without the continued support of funders and donors and I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to ensuring we can continue to support people with CP and their families.
“We were also incredibly touched to receive three separate legacies over the course of the year, which has enabled us to fully fund the fortnightly Bobath Babies group in 2019/20 in addition to supporting our work throughout Scotland in 2018/19.
“We are determined to build on Bobath Scotland’s work in 2019/20, focussed on our beneficiaries and led by doing what will most benefit and improve the lives of people in Scotland with cerebral palsy.”
