Balsall Heath Children Action Team Support
The Balsall Heath Children Action Team Support (CATS) is a Birmingham-based charity that supports children with complex needs, multiple disabilities, impairments and life limiting conditions; bringing them together to be part of a local community.
Since the Coronavirus outbreak, CATS has supported families with access to financial support, facilitated connections with communities through social media and provided support networks for both physical and mental health during national lockdown periods.
Funding from the National Emergencies Trust’s Coronavirus Appeal through the Heart of England Community Foundation, has meant families are able to receive daily contact, and immediate support is provided to those who need it most.
“The support we provide to families with children who have complex needs and multiple disabilities is absolutely vital, say the CATS team. “Funds awarded to us from the National Emergencies Trust mean we can continue to provide much-needed help for these families.”
