St Rose?s School is a remarkable organisation with outstanding abilities in the education, care and therapy of children with severe disabilities and complex health needs. Our vision is to benefit as many children and families as possible. We prepare children for life in the community or further education. The young people at St Rose?s take pride in their progress and feel empowered by their achievements. We help them gain personal fulfilment and skills for greater independence. St Rose?s today deals with ever increasing levels and complexity of disability. It is essential that we evolve to meet the needs of the most severely disabled children who come to us.

Our children need hydrotherapy on site. Therapy in water brings freedom from artificial aids, increased wellbeing as well as a safe environment to practice skills like standing or walking. Water puts a child on a more level footing with their brothers, sisters and friends.

Without funding, our children will have to continue with their long and uncomfortable journey for hydrotherapy. Due to logistical constraints, most will to miss out.

Our little ones need a new Early Years Department at ground floor level with direct access to a sensory playspace and our beautiful grounds. Currently they have a daily struggle with a lift. We urgently need to make these improvements and provide a better quality of life for our children. Your donation will make this happen.
