EQUIPMENT FOR DISABLED CHILDREN

RCN 1028286, Hindhead

EDC provides specialised equipment to help disabled children who live or attend school in the catchment area of the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford. Equipment provided by E4DC is not normally available through State sources and enables children to live more comfortably, to play in more creative ways alongside their peers and siblings, to learn more easily or to enjoy more mobility.

EQUIPMENT FOR DISABLED CHILDREN

Equipment for Disabled Children (E4DC) supports children who live or are educated in South West Surrey, or are under the care of the Royal Surrey County Hospital Children’s Unit. 

We provide equipment that makes their lives as full as possible. The equipment enables disabled children to live more comfortably, to play in more creative ways, to learn more easily and to enjoy better mobility.

We are run entirely by a small group of volunteers. All money comes from local fundraising and virtually all of it is used to buy much needed equipment. We provide equipment, often expensive, to enable mobility, independence and play for local children.

The equipment we provide has always been recommended by a professional in the child’s medical or care team. The equipment is usually specialised, and is either tailor-made or adapted exclusively for the child concerned. It is much more expensive than standard ‘off-the-shelf’ products. 

For example, we are often asked for adapted tricycles. These give a child independence, exercise and the ability to play with other children. They cost upwards of £2000 each.

Every child we support has different needs so each applicant receives individual attention. 

We also make sure that any equipment we purchase can be repurposed if feasible. For example when one of our children grows out of their specialist tricycle, we will have it serviced and possibly adapted so that it will become available for another child to use.
