Newlife is the UK’s leading children’s disability charity specialising in support to aid children affected by all 
disabilities.

And, as a result of having helped 16 families in West Lothian through equipment grants and loans totalling £18,525, they have now launched a local West Lothian appeal.

The family of Bathgate girl Chloe Dyet are backing the launch of an appeal to provide specialist equipment for children with disabilities in West Lothian.

The Newlife West Lothian Fund is an opportunity for local people to help local disabled children with every penny donated or raised in West Lothian guaranteed to support families in the county.

Special disability equipment including wheelchairs, walkers, beds, seating and communication aids can help give children independence, keep them safe, relieve pain and overcome challenges. For instance, you could help a child be discharged from hospital, take their first steps or kick a football with their friends.

The West Lothian Fund website – www.newlifecharity.co.uk/westlothian – will enable local people to find out who needs help in the county right now and highlight the support the charity gives 
vulnerable families.

It includes contact details for the Newlife County Liaison Team – telephone number 01543 431 444 or email local@newlifecharity.co.uk – and shows specific ways people can help support children with disability and terminal illness and their families.
