Help Fund a Salary

Our early intervention service for 0-5's with cerebral palsy could not function without the dedicated professional staff delivering services directly to the children using Conductive Education. Funding a salary would help us achieve the sustainability our families and their children deserve.

January 2013 - December 2013

  • Need


    With early intervention, many children with cerebral palsy can go on to attend a mainstream school as their prognosis is so much better. Through our services they and their families are therefore less likely to become isolated within their local community.


    Using Conductive Education, the children are taught to become active learners, achieving purposeful movement and becoming empowered to make choices. They become independent and can take responsibility for themselves.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Ensure every family who needs our services can access them.


    » Fund up to six salaries

    What success will look like

    Success will be not turning away any suitable family that needs our help.

  • Impact


    In the long term, many of our children will be able to attend the school of their choice, with the appropriate level of support in place.


    In terms of staffing, we have a very stable and motivated staff base dedicated to working with the children, minimising the risk of frequent changes in staffing.


    We produce an annual report but specific reports can be prepared for major donors on request if we are alerted to the need for such a report from the outset.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    The Dame Vera Lynn Trust was formed ten years ago, but our staff have been working with children with cerebral palsy and other motor learning difficulites for much longer. Some have as much as 30 years' teaching experience and regularly participate in national conferences on the subject of Conductive Education.
