Daisy Chains IW was founded in 2012 and is an Isle of Wight based Children’s charity. The charity was founded by 2 Island parents, both of whom have children that have been affected by long term sickness or disability.
After years of Fundraising for their own children they strongly felt there was a need for something to be available on the Isle of Wight to help those parents who are unable to access the equipment and therapies needed to help their children progress.
The charity has now grown and while they continue to run the office day to day there is now a strong team of trustees in place to over see the organisation.?
The Charity’s main aims are;?
To help children with either long term health problems, a life limiting condition or a Disablity that are resident on the Isle of Wight by;
To Provide an Emergency Travel Scheme for children/ parents who meet the criteria.
To help with the cost of General Travel For children/parents to enable them to access treatment, therapy or care.
To purchase aids and equipment that will help children progress or be more comfortable that is not available on the NHS.
To Fund Therapies at various centre’s in the UK, that would otherwise not be available.
We are at present open to medically referred Emergency Travel Grants and self referred general travel grants, we hope to follow this with the opening of our Equipment and Therapies Grants very soon.
