Creating Brighter Futures for the UK's Children
MOVE Europe is a small charity attempting to provide the unique MOVE Programme to all of those severely disabled children throughout Europe who would benefit from it by learning the skills they need for sitting, standing, walking and transferring. The MOVE Programme combines both education and therapy to create a mobility programme, which uses goals set by the child and their families along with a team approach to increase independent mobility in the child’s normal environment.
The MOVE Programme is unique to each child or young adult who uses the Programme as they choose the targets they wish to work on themselves. This ensures that they make improvements in the areas that most impact on their lives, be it learning to lift their head for 30 seconds, which allows them to access the world around them with the opportunity to view their environment and to express choice by being able to look at the person or object they would like to interact with. Or a teenage girl choosing to learn the skills needed to take two steps backwards, may be able to use the toilet independently, allowing her both the privacy and dignity she deserves.
With your help we would like to provide MOVE to all who could benefit from it as soon as possible.
