Brainwave appeals for tradespeople to help complete upgrade

Children’s charity, Brainwave, in Somerset, is looking for tradespeople to help upgrade their current facilities and are opening their books to appoint preferred suppliers interested in working with them to support children with disabilities.

Electrians and plumbers, in particular, are in need to fit an accessible wet room in the accommodation used by visiting families as well as electrical jobs both big and small to manage jobs such as installing lighting units and switches.

All interested tradespeople are being asked to send their details over to the following email address, .

Keith Sinclair, CEO Brainwave, said: “As we celebrate our 40th year and welcome new families to our centre we’re keen to upgrade our facilities and accommodate more children.  Finding reliable tradespeople who we can call on as and when we need will be a great asset to us so any recommendations will be fantastic.”

Brainwave has been helping children with disabilities achieve greater independence for over 40 years by aiming to improve their mobility, communication skills and learning potential through specialist therapies. 

The children that Brainwave work with have a range of conditions including: autism, cerebral palsy and genetic disorders such as Down Syndrome. Their therapists, who are drawn from the mainstream fields of physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and learning and development, work with the family to devise a unique therapy programme, specifically designed to suit their child’s needs, which will help and encourage them to unlock their child’s potential.

Since 1982, Brainwave (who have their headquarters in Bridgwater, Somerset) has delivered over 13,000 assessments to children with have a range of conditions including autism, cerebal palsy, sensory processing and Downs syndrome nationwide. 

They have delivered over 95,000 hours of therapy and loaned out 26,000 pieces of equipment for children to use whilst carrying out their individualised programme at home including therapy wedges, peanut balls and communication development aids.
