The Rose Road Association provides support and services to over 400 disabled children and young people, with overnight short-breaks, community outreach, and holiday and after school play schemes.
Funds from Global’s Make Some Noise have helped to provide music, art and drama sessions for children like Isabel, whilst giving parents a vital break and a chance to mix with other families.
Isabel was born prematurely in 2005 and doctors told her parents that she probably wouldn’t be able to walk or talk. Due to being born so early and with complications at birth, Isabel suffered a large brain haemorrhage that left her with cerebral palsy, epilepsy and learning and behaviour difficulties. She lives at home with her parents and two sisters who all do their best to keep up with Isabel who definitely walks and talks….a lot!
Isabel enjoys staying for a short break at Rose Road, going out with an outreach worker and coming to the after school club. She loves going to the park, hydrotherapy and ten pin bowling! Her family say, “Rose Road has been an amazing facility for us as a family, we have absolute trust in all the staff, and the joy it has brought to Isabel is beyond words.”
