The Move Programme receive a donation from Unum and Jiraffe
The donation has been specifically gifted to the Move Programme to enable schools to purchase equipment to support the programme
The Move Programme from Enham Trust is a philosophy, a way of life for disabled children, and disabled people with complex needs; providing the personalised care and support they need to gain functional mobility, and increased independence.
Put simply, the Move Programme from Enham Trust is a practice put in place so disabled children and disabled people with complex needs are supported to gain the physical and communication skills they need in order to:
- SIT to eat, participate in activities, education and eventual employment;
- STAND to increase strength, mobility and flexibility;
- WALK to participate in play or complete tasks, with and without support;
- TRANSITION from bed to chair or sitting to standing;
The Move Programme recently applied for a grant from Unum – one of the UK’s leading financial protection insurers for equipment that would benefit children on the Move Programme. The donation will be a Monkey Prone Stander, by Jenx. This specialist piece of equipment is specifically designed to appeal to young children for a gentle introduction to standing. Offering smooth and easy angle adjustment, even with the child in the product, the Monkey can go from upright at 90 degrees right down to 20 degrees prone – perfect for gradually building tolerance to standing as part of a therapy programme. The capacity for outstanding thoracic and pelvic support coupled with flexible leg positioning make the Monkey prone stander a great option for almost every child.
The Monkey Standing frame comes complete with:
- Chest, hip and leg support boards
- Adjustable chest, hip and leg positioning pads
- Chest and hip straps
- Intergrated angle adjustable tray with bowl
- Footboard Size 1 sandals
- 4 lockable, swivel castors
In order to pass this benefit to a child we need applications from any individual that supports a child on the programme. The application needs to include; whom the equipment would be used for and why it would improve their quality of life.
