Hi everyone just wondering if you can help me please, I’m in a wheelchair full time for the past 10 yrs. my wife is disabled and is waiting for a kidney transplant my youngest son has just turned 16 on Sunday and 2 yrs ago was diagnosed with autism. He goes to a specialist school for kids with autism 5 days a week I’m wondering if there is any financial help we can get for him as it costs us a fortune
