Cerebra, the charity that works improve the lives of children with brain-related conditions is aiming to make supermarket trips and family outings with disabled children a little bit easier.
Because of the need for increased physical support when seated, it is very difficult for children with some disabilities to visit the supermarket of go out to restaurants with their families, creating one more barrier in a life that is already packed with them.
Now the charity has teamed up with James Leckey Design who have created a special support seat, the "GoTo Seat" as a solution.
The Firefly GoTo Seat is a versatile, lightweight and portable supportive seat that is fitted with a five-point harness and washable covers. It allows children who need extra support to participate safely in family events from eating out, sitting in a shopping trolley or playing on the swings.
Cerebra's backing means that 7% of every GoTo Seat sale will go to supporting its amazing work.
The design company, James Leckey, plans to launch a whole range of 'Firefly' products that will be available online, aimed at making life easier for many children with disabilities and their families.
