Power to communicate

£9,700 of £9,100 goal

Raised by 215 people in 22 months
Nigel was severely injured in a road traffic accident whilst coming home from work on his motorcycle. This happened three and a half years ago. Due to a traumatic brain injury he is unable to speak, eat or even smile. As a result, he cannot communicate his thoughts or feelings.

However, he was recently assessed with eye gaze technology which he got the hang of and which seems to be appropriate to help him to communicate his memories, how he feels, what he thinks and especially to make choices.

Unless he can make his needs and desires know, best interest decisions are made on his behalf which would not always be what he would have chosen for himself before the accident.

Nigel has lost control of his life and has to rely on others to do what he would prefer to do himself. Giving him a means to communicate would mean that he would at least have a say about how care is given and he can also make choices over who gives it.
