Sascha supports Scope, a charity that helps people with cerebral palsy, Hemihelp, a charity for young people with hemiplegia and The Firefighters Charity, which provides treatment and support services for firefighters injured in the course of their work.


HemiHelp

Hemiplegia is a neurological condition that weakens one side of the body and affects one child in a thousand. It is sometimes described as a form of Cerebral Palsy and the effects are similar to those of a stroke. HemiHelp is a small national membership organisation offering information and support to children and their families affected by hemiplegia. The services that they offer include a helpline, conferences for parents and medical professionals, activity days for children, music, drama and creative movement workshops, a home visiting service and the production of a wide range of information and advice leaflets, as well as a popular quarterly magazine.

The Fire Fighters Charity

Every year, thousands of fire fighters are injured whilst protecting the public. Every 30 seconds in the UK , fire fighters are called to an incident, putting their lives on the line, and often sustaining physical injuries whilst carrying out their duties. The Fire Fighters Charity is here for fire fighters during their times of need, and assists over 17,000 individuals every year, by providing pioneering treatment and support services.

The modern, dynamic and award-winning charity has three UK centres, located in Cumbria , Devon and West Sussex , which offer varying combinations of therapy and recuperation services. The Charity's pioneering new Beneficiary Support Services also offer local and remote assistance to people in need nationwide. It costs over £9 million every year to keep the Charity running, and with no government funding, the Charity are completely reliant upon donations from the general public and fire community.
