Paces Sheffield partners with Slater and Gordon



An outreach programme which supports children with Cerebral Palsy and their families is being sponsored by law firm Slater and Gordon, as part of a new partnership with a leading charity. 

Slater and Gordon has partnered with Paces Sheffield, a charity which supports families impacted by CP and other motor disorders. 

Jodie Cook is senior associate at Slater and Gordon in Sheffield.

She said: “We are delighted to be able to work alongside Paces Sheffield and to support its highly successful Paces Outreach Programme. 

“Children and families from across the country are benefitting from the support of this great charity, which is doing so much to help children from the very earliest points in their lives.”

From its state-of-the-art centre in Sheffield, Paces operates its Paces School to support the development of children and young people – with children attending from across the country – and its Paces Living programme for adults. 

Currently, the charity supports over 350 children, adults and families. 

To help support the ongoing development of the charity and its ability to continue to support those who need its services, Slater and Gordon has partnered with Paces Sheffield to sponsor its Paces Outreach Programme. 

The service supports children from the point of diagnosis – from six months onwards – through to them attending school and beyond.

With the help of the programme, many children go on to join mainstream education.

Those families it supports cite the benefits of its peer-to-peer provision, as well as its educational benefit for children. 

Cook said: “Evidence shows that early intervention has a hugely positive impact on the quality of life for children, reducing the need for later care and enabling greater independence. 

“Being based in Sheffield, we see first-hand the fantastic contribution Paces makes to the community and the impact it has.

“We look forward to building our relationship further and to supporting the ongoing development of its life-changing work.”
