President Message from our President HRH, The Countess of Wessex GCVO I am delighted to give my support to Brainwave, a very special Charity which deservedly has built a national reputation for its home based, therapy programmes. It has been a pleasure to visit the Brainwave centre in Somerset, when opening the Hydrotherapy Pool and on the completion of two additional bungalows, which are now in regular use by families when they attend the Centre for their child’s assessments. My most recent visit to the centre was in May 2012 as part of their 30th Birthday Celebrations. Since becoming involved in 2002 I have been constantly impressed by the skill and dedication of the staff and parents and their determination to bring greater independence to children with neurodevelopmental conditions, like cerebral palsy or Down syndrome. I look forward to continuing my work as President and promoting a greater awareness of the Charity and its provision. This is an opportunity that should not be missed and is worthy of all our support.
