Other Equipment Available
Although we work in partnership with NighWatch suppliers, we are happy to discuss support for any equipment you prefer. If you would like to apply for a NightWatch monitor, we will pass your contact details to the company for a triage call to ensure this is the correct equipment for you.
We help with funding for equipment
We support young people (under 25 years) to access monitors, alarms and other equipment which would not normally be available on the NHS.
At the moment our areas of operation are Cheshire East and West Yorkshire, however as our charity grows we will expand our area of support. We currently have a small amount of funds to support young people most in need in other areas of England
We are happy to discuss individual requirements and consider providing at least partial funding towards eqiupment which is most suitable for the young person’s needs. Examples of items we will consider
Alarms and Monitors, e.g. Nightwatch, Embrace, Pulseguard, and Epicare standard and mobile.
Bed Monitors e.g. Companion, Guardian, Sensor Mat, etc.
Safety Pillows (anti suffocation pillows)
We have been working closey with LivAssured who supply NightWatch epilepsy monitors. Thanks to the many fundraising events we have managed to purchase a number of monitors to provide support young people living with epilepsy.
Sorry but we cannot provide donations to other charities, Funeral services, Home adaptations, Holidays etc.
Forest Schools/Bushcraft Days
JSF has been working with “Head Into The Wild” a provider of Forest School and Bushcraft activity days, we have arranged funding for days out for Bereaved Siblings to join in these fun sessions and enjoy the outdoors while taking some quiet time away from the grief at home.
The Trustees are happy to discuss any other type of support which is appropriate to individual interests.
We Help to Improve the Mental Health of Bereaved Siblings
We can at least partially fund activities and/or counselling to support bereaved siblings. The Trustees are happy to discuss your particular needs and preferences and offer some support for activities which will improve the mental health of young people (0-25 years). These could be anything from one to one counselling or art therapy to membership of local sports clubs, providing it is within the local area and within the criteria written into the constitution. They type of support offered is entirely driven by the interests and wishes of the young person.
If you are a club or organisation which offeres activities which would be of interest to our young people please get in touch.
If you are a bereaved sibling and have a particular interest, you feel would help, please get in touch.
Memory Teddies for Bereaved Siblings.
Working Hard to Promote Awareness of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy)
Our charity is determined to promote awareness of the risks associated with epilepsy, including the risk of SUDEP.
We are not experts but we can signpost users to organisations which are. We regularly research and follow the latest papers and discussions about SUDEP and share what we find through our social media links.
The Founder, is working hard together with local Health Authorities to make changes to what is discussed with patients, sharing her experience of her traumatic loss is having an impact on leaders within the Authority. She is also working in partnership with the Specialist Nursing Team within the Neurology department at Royal Stoke University Hospital, to offer patients funding for equipments where appropriate and offering talks to local support groups.
We have shared our story in local press and radio, in an effort to reach the wider public and encourage them to ask questions of their clinicians
