Equipment Grants:
Newlife Foundation offers grant for essential equipment. Newlife Nurses can progress a grant for equipment direct from Newlife funds or they can provide information of grants available nationally from other sources.

Just Can't Wait Service:
To ensure that termnally ill children don't have to wait to get vital equipment, Newlife offers the Just Can't Wait Service. Newlife is able to loan essential professionally-maintained equipment as a matter of urgency, to children with life limiting conditions and/or palliative needs, within 72 hours of the family verbally agreeing to the terms and conditions of a loan agreement.

Play Therapy Pod Service:
When children have complicated medial needs, the opportunity to play and develop through sensory interactions is often minimised due to time, resources or ability. Newlife recognise that the therapeutic effect of play can make a huge difference to individual children and the family as a whole - which is why Play Therapy Pods of specialist toys are loaned to children for an average of 12 weeks .
