The Movement Centre received a £10,000 donation from the Enterprise Holdings Foundation to help maximise the potential of children’s movement control through Targeted Training throughout the UK by supporting early childhood development. The donation will enable The Movement Centre to continue providing a specialist therapy called Targeted Training to help children gain movement control. Targeted Training therapy can enable children to develop new skills and become far more independent. This can have a huge impact on their life. It can also make a big difference to the lives of their family and friends.
Through a course of Targeted Training therapy children can gain head control, so they can interact with their family; it can help children develop the skills to sit unaided, so that they can play with their friends. For some children it can enable them to walk.
This donation is part of Enterprise Holdings Foundation’s inaugural local ROAD Forward grants (Respect, Opportunity, Advancement and Diversity). Established in November 2020, the ROAD Forward commitment will donate $55 (£40) million over five years to organisations that advance social and racial equity in the communities where it operates.
