can you help us make our home suitable?

Hi,We are currently trying to raise £6,396.91 for the adaptations to our home to make it fully accessible and suitable for our children, Mia and Cory!! The DFG from the council unfortunately does not meet the full cost therefore we need your help :) any donations or suggestions on fundraising will be gratefully received. All help appreciated!! Below is a little about the children and what the DFG will do for us.ThanksLeanne (Mia and Cory's mummy)Mia and Cory are siblings with a rare genetic condition called RARS 2 mutation mitochondrial epilepsy PCH type 6. They are both severely disabled, non verbal, doubly incontinent, unable to walk or even bear weight through their limbs, they rely on us (their parents) for their 24hr round the clock care. We are currently going through the process of gaining a council grant to adapt our house to make it suitable and accessible for Mia and Cory. As you can imagine at 4yrs and 2yrs they are becoming heavier by the day and transporting them up and down the stairs and generally around the house is becoming quite dangerous, the adaptaions will give us a throught the floor lift to access their bedrooms, hoisting throughtout the top floor to allow us to safely transport them from bed to chairs or shower trollley, a wet room and an actual bedroom for each of the kids (Cory currently shares with me and my husband). It will make our lives so much simpler, easier and safer. We currently have to carry the children everywhere even in and out of our wheelchair accessible van as our entrances are not even accessible to wheelchairs as its steps into the property, this will also be resolved with a ramp and a widened entrance to accomodate the kids wheelchairs directly out of the van straight into our home. Thank you for helping us achieve this!!
