"It is very hard managing at home with no equipment & having to endure stares & comments whenever I go out. I try & give Jayden the best of all I have but it can be just so stressful. Especially worrying is the future & what it holds."

'We were receiving no support at all. I was relying on my close family & friends to get through, day to day. It was tough. I felt really degraded as a mother to have to hold my hand up and say I’m really struggling to care for my child'

Much that we'd like to take the credit, we can't. It's all the work of wonderful parents from around the country. We're just using our networks to help publicise it.

"When we finally did get a diagnosis, all we got was a pack of leaflets about local courses and services. Other than that, there was no follow up. This is how disabled children and their families are let down by the system."

For families with a disabled child, activities like visiting the park or the shops can take weeks to plan, need specialist equipment, transportation, & require additional support. They are made even harder because the right support is simply not in place.
