    Hi Ladies,

    Could you all list the charities that you have applied to to get equipment for your lovely children. I have react but am stuck where to find out anything else.

    This could then become a sticky and would be great help for us all and newcomers.

    i work with children with special needs and can simpathise with u all if u have ever had to stuggle with getting equipment. i south wales they go through their physio , ot or some go throught heir community nurse or social worker. there is an equipment loan centre called dewis centre for independent living equipment loan they do bath seats hoists etc and social services are pretty good in helping with equipment .

    Google ‘contact a family’ – they helped me claim for a weighted blanket for R. They also gave me a list of grant making trusts and organisations.

    Does anyone know if there’s any charities that help disabled parents to look after their children? My OT can provide adult equipment for me and any equipment my daughter needs because she is disabled but nobody can provide things she needs because I am disabled. I mean things like a sliding door cot, a rise and fall bath seat, a radio hearing aid so a parent can hear their child talking, that kind of thing. There is a lot of impact on kids’ lives from this sort of thing and there doesn’t seem to be anyone filling this funding gap.

    On Facebook, if you look for Merlins Magic Wand, you can join that page and they will help give you, your child and rest of your family, a day out, including petrol, at theme parks ie. Alton Towers, Legoland etc.

    We got 6 tickets, petrol to Legoland to give our two autistic children, a lovely day.
