Since its formation in early 2005, The Nihal Armstrong Trust has helped many children across the UK. You can see some examples of how we have helped below.

Zoya Parveen

In 2023. the Trust funded the purchase of this pushchair for Zoya who was born in 2017. Her mother, Shahida Parveen, says, "We have been able to enjoy family time out & about thanks to this charity. Thank you again to everyone at the Nihal Armstrong Trust."

"Charlotte is loving pressing the buttons on her new sensory toys! It's lovely to see her being able to play."

Manuela Constantin

In 2020, the Trust funded piano lessons for Manuela who was born in 2015. Her mother says, “She has started piano lessons recently and this is making a huge difference to her life. She is very enthusiastic about it, has started using her left hand more, has started using her right hand more efficiently. The music teacher has said Manuela has already made very good progress with her fine motor skills, attention span and piano skills. I have also noticed that after her piano lesson she is in a better mood and much more confident of what she can do.”

Oscar Day
Oscar Day

Oscar Day, born in 2013, in his lycra suit bought with the help of the Trust. His father says, "As can be seen, it really supports Oscar's trunk, meaning he has a lot more head and body control and that Oscar is now getting increasing movement in his arms and legs. This increased independence has meant that Oscar is more able to use his walker and stander and enjoys interacting with his peers a lot more. It also means Oscar can play with his switch-adapted toys or eye-gaze computer for a lot longer duration."

Blake Barley

Blake Barley, born in 2009 and already a competent versifier, had this to say about his new trike:

There was a time not long ago,
I couldn't ride a trike,
Then after searching long and hard
we found a special bike.
It stretches muscles, and keeps me fit,
and lets me have such fun,
But most of all, with Beth and Bryce
new playtimes have begun.
We cycle on the school run,
and have bike rides on weekends,
And now I have a bicycle
like all my other friends.
