Generous grants from Action Medical Research have allowed our research team to investigate the effects of resistance training in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy and the effects of RaceRunning on cardiometabolic risk factors in those with neurodevelopmental disorders.
Our partnership with the University of Gloucestershire is fundamental to our research strategy. The partnership exploits the University's leading research into areas of neurodevelopmental disability in order to revolutionise support for adults and children with learning and developmental challenges.
Grant funding from Gloucestershire Arthritis Trust has enabled us to investigate the use of hydrotherapy for children and adolescents with joint hypermobility syndrome.
Support from MDUK has allowed us to offer hydrotherapy sessions for children with muscular dystrophy. This has enabled us to investigate the effect of hydrotherapy on strength, respiratory function and quality of life.
In the UK today there are 11 million people with a disability. Our research work with disabled people across the lifespan gives us a unique perspective in the charity sector that allows us to provide research-driven advice and management to several different conditions.
The Chamwell Centre supports research aimed at addressing the lack of evidence around interventions that promote health benefits for those with a varying range of disabilities.
The Chamwell Centre was built entirely by charitable funding and will rely on the generosity of the public, businesses and charitable trusts to continue its work and to ensure that children and adults in Gloucestershire can enjoy its facilities.
