Caudwell Children

24th January 2018

Baywater Healthcare have recently helped Stoke-on-Trent based charity, Caudwell Children.

Caudwell Children is a charity who look to transform the lives of disabled children across the UK; founded in 2000 by John Caudwell, the charity has supported over 20,000 children and their families.

When the charity discovered that they had a shortage of specialist oxygen equipment for their Destination Dreams holiday to Disney World, Baywater Healthcare stepped in to help, ensuring that 25 disabled children can safely travel to Florida for a magical time.

Our first visit to Caudwell Children saw us deliver specialist oxygen equipment, this included light weight concentrators.

Adam Sullivan, CEO of Baywater Healthcare said “We are very pleased to support Caudwell Children. I’d like to think that by providing the equipment, we will help in some small way to change the lives of the children, helping them and their families to enjoy their holiday as much as possible.”

Lisa Bates, Associate Director of Core Services at Caudwell Children stated, “Crewe based Baywater Healthcare has stepped in to save the day. Without them supplying the charity with a number of lightweight oxygen concentrators and rechargeable batteries, we faced the real prospect of being unable to provide equipment for all the families who need it, so Baywater Healthcare’s support is a welcome relief.”

Baywater Healthcare surprised Caudwell Children about a week later by giving them around 80 tablets that had kindly been donated from Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust.

The trust had upgraded their tablets and wanted to put them to good use. Antonia Gabrielli, Poole North Locality Manager at the Trust said “We have longstanding partnership with Baywater Healthcare who provide our Managed Telehealth Service. We approached Baywater Healthcare and asked if they could help us find a Charity who would be able to use the tablets. We were delighted that our donation would go to a children’s charity to enable children with life limiting conditions to live a normal life as possible.”

Lisa added “I just wanted to say thank you again for this amazing generosity. We just love Baywater Healthcare, they have been so supportive of our charity!”

Baywater Healthcare were honoured to help Caudwell Children. If we can contribute to bringing a smile to the faces of these inspirational children, it will be a job well done.

The Baywater Healthcare Team wish the entire group a wonderful and safe time at Disney World!
