Care in the community

Andy Ferguson the Technical Director has identified a need for the IDEALS to cooperate with the Al Asdiqaa Association (AAA) in order to assist with the care in the community of children with cerebral palsy and other neurological and musculoskeletal conditions.

The Unit is sited near to the Egyptian border and has a strong base in a local special school which educates a large number of disabled children.AAA also gives assistance to their parents.

A great requirement was for the appointment of an Occupational Therapist to visit children in their homes and IDEALS has agreed to sponsor this work.

The Occupational Therapist began work on September 1st 2011 and the first payment form IDEALS has been made.

Further information on this project with description of the work will be posted. initially the project is designed to run for a year and its future will be dependent on the results of the activity over this period and whether or not further funds are obtained.
