Grant/funding for home adaptations
My partners little boy has spastic cerebral palsy, he is 4 and we have just been told the nerves in his lower legs are not being reached by his brain so he will never walk. He currently lives with his mum in England but we live here in Wales and need to find out if we can get some funding to adapt our house (that we own) for him for when he comes to stay - usually every two weeks and all over his school holidays. We need a downstairs loo/shower room and also a stairlift. His mum is currently in the processs of being moved to a suitable home as she is in a privately rented house at the moment. Are there any organisations we can contact to help us and/or has anyone had any similar experiences in relation to this? Help!
