Nottingham charity receives three-year grant from BBC Children in Need


The Footprints Conductive Education Centre, based in Nottingham has announced that they have recently been awarded a brand new three-year grant from BBC Children in Need.

Footprints strides to change the lives of children facing mobility and communication challenges throughout the East Midlands and relies solely on fundraising, charity partnerships, and grants to sustain its operations.

The organisation requires £30,916 each month to maintain its services.

This new grant will allow Footprints to expand and enhance its charitable efforts, offering increased services and assistance to children and young individuals with disabilities.

Shellie who is Mum to Adonis, attends Footprints Conductive Education services and will benefit from the BBC Children in Need grant, said: “Footprints has made me hopeful for that future I was once grieving for. They have taught us so much, supported my family emotionally and been there for us at some of the toughest times in Adonis’ journey. I am so thankful to have been introduced to Footprints by another parent and I always think how different our lives would be without the staff, the parents and the truly inspirational children who attend!”

Footprints charity and business manager Stephen Frew said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have been awarded this new grant from BBC Children in Need. As a charity we’ve been supported by them since 2014, and their support is essential for our charity to provide our transformative services to children who live with communication and mobility difficulties. Our services are life changing and give families hope and empowerment.”
