Motion text

That this House commends the charity React (Rapid Effective Assistance for Children with Potentially Terminal Illness); applauds their efforts to improve the quality of life for financially disadvantaged children with life-limiting illnesses living in the United Kingdom; notes their calculated estimate that there are up to 7,500 terminally ill children nationwide whose families struggle to afford the costly care they require; supports their belief that every child should have comfort, dignity and the opportunity to participate in life as fully as possible; recognises the fact that they respond quickly, practically and sensitively to supply a wide range of equipment from specialised wheelchairs, beds, baths and mobility aids to essential everyday items like washing machines and tumble dryers; and applauds their ongoing efforts to raise awareness and reach out to an even greater number of terminally ill children across the United Kingdom who deserve a greater level of care.
