Changing Lives

Giving Back

We’re proud of the many ways in which our team members’ efforts go beyond simply providing legal representation. It stands them apart and it means that we are really making a difference to the communities in which we live and work.

Many families with children who have neurological injuries struggle to get the early support and therapy needed to help them and their child get the best start in life at a time when it is most needed.

At CL Medilaw we are committed to giving back £5000 each year in funding grants to support families needing help in their child’s early years, whether or not they have a successful legal claim. This includes providing funding for therapy, equipment and community support.

In addition we also sponsor individuals taking on exceptional challenges despite their disability, and volunteer and fund raise to support many of the charities we work with.

We have strong links with local and national charities and groups, who provide fantastic support to families whose children have a neurological injury. We can help you to find the right organisation to provide further support when you need it the most.

Here is an example of how CL Medilaw have given back to our community over recent months:-

Scott

Scott and his mum Sal have waited a very long time for a new property from their local housing association to be adapted to meet Scott’s needs. We are funding sensory lights and a music system to come with Scott’s specialist bath in his new home to make bath time even more fun and relaxing for him. As described by Sal, the bath is his “happy place” and we think it deserves to be made special.
“I’m so grateful to CL Medilaw for funding the lights and sound for Scotty’s bath. He struggles badly with anxiety and having a bath with his favourite tunes and relaxing lighting will help him hugely.  Thank you!”
– Sal, Scott’s mum.

Charlie

For Charlie, music is a great passion, but being able to play instruments when his arms and body are severely impacted by cerebral palsy is a challenge. When Charlie started school at Treloars he signed up for singing lessons to help the development of his breathing and lung capacity as well as his speech and diction.
“Charlie’s teacher specialises in music and told us that he had seen another student using the Clarion and expressed an interest in using this too. We are so grateful to CL Medilaw for offering £500 towards singing and clarion lessons as this brings Charlie immense happiness on top of helping him cognitively and with his fine motor skills.”
– Laura, Charlie’s mum.

Jorgie-Rose

The siblings of a child with a brain injury are often greatly impacted and that’s why we think it is also important to support the wider family. We are ‘Giving Back’ to Jorgie-Rose and her family by paying for some extra professional care so that her siblings can enjoy a trip to the seaside with their Mum and Dad together, something that is normally impossible, with a little extra money to pay for an ice cream or two.
“Using the Giving Back money to help fund Jorgie’s nursing care allows us to spend time with her older brothers away from the stresses of home doing normal things, like trips to the sea side or days out, which we otherwise would struggle to do together.”
– Jason, Jorgie’s dad.

Sumya

Sumya was born at 29 weeks gestation and following her early arrival suffered a grade 2 intraventricular haemorrhage. A subsequent MRI confirmed bilateral periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). Sumya has been diagnosed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy.
“I wanted to find out if there was any medical negligence during my daughter’s birth. CL Medilaw has looked into the deepest details of this they were always very proactive and would take the time to explain the process with us. One day I received an email from Kay Taylor that CL Medilaw wanted to give something back to my daughter and they arranged Alexa lights to be fitted in her bedroom and bathroom. My daughter turns all the lights on/off all by herself – this is so amazing to see and another step towards her independent living. As Parents we have really no words to explain how happy we are for all that CL Medilaw has done for us. ❤️❤️❤️”
– Fasal, Sumya’s dad.

Henry

Henry was one of monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) twins, born at 29 weeks. Henry has periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), a form of brain injury that can occur in babies usually between 28 and 34 weeks gestation when there has been some form of insult to the brain during pregnancy or at birth. We are delighted to have been able to contribute to Henry’s conductive education sessions and learn about the great progress he has made.
“Henry is 3 years old and as a result of a brain injury, was diagnosed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy at 10 months. CL Medilaw have very kindly donated to Henry’s charity campaign, Heroes for Henry, Just4Children, giving Henry the opportunity to access further conductive education sessions. Thanks to very generous donations Henry has been able to attend conductive education therapy sessions since he was 1.

Conductive education is a method of learning to enable those with physical and neurological disabilities to consciously learn how to perform actions. Henry has progressed so much during these sessions, he’s learnt to roll in to his conductor’s arms which he finds very fun, he’s learnt to push himself along on his back and he’s learnt to walk assisted by his Conductor and a support. Henry is non mobile and conductive education has helped him to move. The best thing as Henry’s parents is to see Henry enjoy himself and not only do these sessions give Henry the opportunity of independence, they are also fun for him too.

We can’t thank the team at CL Medilaw enough for their very kind donation towards Henry’s therapy. Every therapy session to another step towards a better future for Henry and we are so grateful for your support. Thank you so much.” – Carly, Henry’s mum.

Footsteps Foundation

Some children with cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders are not able to access the physiotherapy that is required to aid their development and rehabilitation as therapy sessions can be very expensive. We realise the importance of early intervention and therapy so as part of our giving back scheme we donated £500 to the Footsteps Foundation so that we could support a child with a block of intensive physiotherapy at the Footsteps Centre in Wallingford. This is what Footsteps had to say:
“We are very grateful for the support of CL Medilaw, which will help disabled children like Charlie to receive the physiotherapy that they need”
