  • Charities – We proudly deliver services to charities throughout the UK, including supporting with grant funding applications or arranging major home adaptations.

  • Local Education Authorities – We regularly provide assessments and treatment on behalf of LEAs, whether requested by a school or part of an EHCP.

  • Solicitors & Case Managers – Our Paediatric OTs provide assessments, reports and treatment for children to many of the country’s leading firms.
