Established in 1970, PhysCap is a Yorkshire based charity run completely by volunteers. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for children suffering from severe physical and mental disabilities within the Yorkshire area. We are the last resort for families who may have limited funds to buy specialist or therapeutic equipment for their children to help make their lives a little easier. We work very closely with therapists, hospitals and local specialist schools in our area who know our reputation and refer many families to us. In the past, we have supported children with conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Cats Eye Syndrome, Angelman Syndrome and Muscular Dystrophy to name but a few.
Over the past 25 years we have provided countless families with equipment ranging from touch screen computer systems and adapted treadmills to electric buggies and specially adapted trikes. We’ve also helped with funding for children who require both therapy and conductive education.
I am delighted to add my support and proud to be associated with PhysCap
Our aim as a charity is to always be in a position to say ‘yes’ when families ask for our help; that depends on having the funds available.
Each year PhysCap hold a number of fundraising events to raise money and we’re always on the look out for new event ideas.
