Lifelites

Lifelites provides specialist entertainment, educational and assistive technology packages to children and young people with life-limiting, life-threatening and disabling conditions in children's hospices. Our vision is to give these children opportunities to benefit from the power of assistive and inclusive technologies to learn, to be creative, to communicate and to take control.

Additional Information
Through the power of technology and high tech entertainments, Lifelites is the only children's charity striving to give children in hospices the chance to spend quality time with their families, the means to keep in contact with their school and friends, and simply to enjoy themselves away from the constant reality of their illness. Children and their families can play the new X box 360 consoles and other high-tech games equipment, plus wide-screen Sky TV’s give them the rare chance to enjoy their favourite programmes and relax together at what is often a very difficult time for them all. Wherever possible, the computer equipment comes with special adaptations to enable all the children to continue their studies and communicate with their friends and teachers, and digital cameras also help to make a lasting record of the special time the families spend together at the hospice. In addition, Lifelites supplies all the required telecoms and Sky connections free of charge and will maintain the equipment along the way. This means that the hospices’ own funds and care staff activities can remain concentrated on delivering care for the children and support for their families.
