Supporting Carers

Last year your support enabled us to help 1032 carers…

 

Colin’s wife, Trish, had a stroke leaving her with weakness on one side and she also suffers other health conditions and so relies on Colin  for support with daily tasks, although he himself is elderly.  Colin was finding it increasingly difficult to push Trish in her manual wheelchair so she had become housebound and isolated. A powerpack would enable the couple to get back some quality time outside the home and help them to be part of their local community again – but their pension income wouldn’t cover the cost.  Thanks to you, we’ve been able to provide a wheelchair powerpack giving so many benefits, including improved health and emotional wellbeing, and increased personal dignity, respect and control.
