Hi everybody looking for some information, I’m in a wheelchair full time and my wife is waiting for a kidney transplant my 16yr old son was told he has autism 2 yrs ago. He goes to a specialist school 5 days a week I’m just wondering if there is any help we can get as nobody tells you anything

    Ring your local Welfare Rights office or CAB they are usually very helpful and understanding.

    What you maybe able to claim will depend on your circumstances. With very little information other than disabilities then it's impossible to help further.

    Does your son have a social worker or similar who can help you with this? Does your wife have access to help via hospital ?
