NCS Support Services are very proud to have donated an Apple iPad to Rainbow House, Mawdesley, near Ormskirk.
Rainbow House is a local charity close to their hearts providing a specialist centre of rehabilitation, education and fun for disabled children across the North West and support for their families.
The children who come to Rainbow House have a neurological condition or acquired brain injury. Many of them have little hope of living independent lives but Rainbow House has helped to change the lives of many of the children who use their services and given them a better quality of life.
Clare Richards, Senior Fundraising Manager at Rainbow House comments, “Part of our conductive education programme is to use an iPad on which we install specialist apps that children with physical disabilities can use. We also use the iPads to record the children such as films of their first steps walking independently so that the families can see their progress and we rely on them massively.”
Carl Nelson, Managing Director of NCS Support Services, adds, “We have seen first-hand how useful the iPads are for Rainbow House so when we heard that their current tablets were very old and not functioning as they should, we didn’t hesitate to help to source a new one.
“Visiting the centre to handover the iPad was such a heart-warming experience, you can see how the iPad will be invaluable to the children and their families. We’re looking forward to developing our relationship with the team further and seeing how we can help them in the future.”
