New name and logo for BDF Newlife

The charity has changed its name to Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children and broadened its scope to become a "one-stop shop" for all childhood disability issues.


The charity has focused on the health and welfare of children with inborn conditions for nearly 20 years.

Its remit has now expanded to encompass acquired conditions, including cancer, infection-based conditions such as meningitis, other conditions such as cerebral palsy, and accidents and injuries.

The charity has retained its mission to help with inborn conditions such as syndromes and malformations.

The Newlife logo has also been redesigned to reflect the charity's wider reach and now features a parent and child in place of the previous parent and baby logo.

Sheila Brown, chief executive of Newlife, said: "More children are surviving with more complex needs. More equipment has been invented to meet these needs, but less is being made available.

"Families are faced with battles to get help and our vulnerable and precious children are losing out. This must and will change."
