BKT Working in Partnership with Home Start

Home Start Logo

We have recently formed a partnership with the Manchester branches of the charity Home-Start. We have had the opportunity to visit a number of the families supported by Home-Start and have been able to offer help with much needed items when necessary. We sincerely hope that this partnership will continue to develop which enables us to give help when it is really needed.

BKT have recently ‘joined forces’ with RBC in order to expand the work we do in helping children with special needs.

Working with the Occupational Therapist division of RBC, we have been able to contact a number of families and have awarded grants for a number of items, including a sleep pod, specialist bed, outdoor all terrain buggy and a contribution towards a specialist wheelchair.

This is an ideal partnership for BKT and RBC as the therapists know and have often supported the families for a long time and are therefore aware of their individual needs. Many families struggle to find funding for disabled equipment which is not available through statutory services therefore we are often able to help, thus making a small difference to the lives of these children and their families.

We hope that our partnership will continue to flourish but more importantly, lighten the burden of children and families who are going through difficult times.

For advise on how to apply for funding please contact RBS at : http://rochdale.fsd.org.uk/kb5/rochdale/fsd/localoffer.page

Quote from Rainbow House:

“Rainbow House is delighted to announce our working partnership with the Brian Kennedy Trust. We have recently received support from the Trust when they funded two pieces of Physiotherapy Equipment which will prove invaluable to our children.

Rainbow House is a charity that helps children, young people and adults with disabilities and acquired brain injuries learn how to learn life skills, in order to live more independently. We do this through Conductive Education – a system of learning involving Rehabilitation, Education and Fun! We are looking forward to working closely with The Brian Kennedy Trust and the partnership can continue to flourish in the future.”


In August 2010 BKT established a partnership with the Cheshire Constabulary,

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them
