£3,350 to Dingley's Promise

Dingley's Promise is a registered charity with the mission to deliver life changing support to under 5's with additional needs and disabilities and their families by providing specialist learning through play, family support and training.  They also offer advice to mainstream settings.  They have 3 Centres located in Newbury, Wokingham and Reading and their main objectives are to reach as many children as possible, ensure every child transitions to the best educational option for them when they leave Dingley, offer year round support to both parents and children, network and signpost to ensure all of the child's needs are met and ensure parents are given choices and their voices are heard.  Their application to ACT was for a mobile and height adjustable changing table for their Newbury Centre.  Many of their children they look after have autism, Asperger's syndrome, cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome, global developmental delay, physical disabilities and life-limiting conditions.  They wear nappies beyond the typical toddler stage and staff are required to change nappies for older and heavier children.  ACT were delighted to be able to fund this essential piece of equipment which will ease manoeuvrability, be safer and be more hygienic.
