What we aim to achieve.
Dexter's Light now wants to raise funds for a sensory room so that children can learn key skills through interaction with light, texture and sound.
Equipment will be purchased by Dexter's Light and loaned short or long term to children's centres, play schools, nurseries and other local settings.
It will be available to all groups including able-bodied and disabled children. It will be available to all children no matter what ethnic or religious background they come from.
Each sensory room costs £15,000 to purchase, service and maintain. Dexter's Light is run entirely on donations. All of the staff and fundraisers do it for the little boy below.
Every penny donated to Dexter's Light goes directly to fund the equipment we want to buy for the children's groups.
Dexter's light supports the work carried out by the Lullaby Trust (Registered Charity No. 262191)
Every year, here in the UK, over 600 babies - the majority of whom appear to be perfectly healthy - will die suddenly and unexpectedly. Although some of these can be explained after investigation, many cannot. All are individual tragedies.
The Lullaby Trust is working hard on four critical fronts to tackle this issue:
The Lullaby Trust also campaign tirelessly, lobbying government to keep sudden infant death on the public health agenda and working in a coordinated way to build public awareness and knowledge.
Join us to help them in the fight to do what it takes to stop babies dying suddenly and unexpectedly.
