Confidential Helpline 0345 600 4586
Paul is a serving RM employee, currently on a career break to support his wife, Jan, who is paralysed from the shoulders down and confined to a wheelchair.
The Fund has supported Paul and Jan with £1,500 towards household adaptations, allowing Jan a level of independence with a downstairs bedroom and wetroom.
The work is now underway, which is great news for all the family and particularly for Jan, whose standard of living will improve considerably. Paul and Jan have 3 children and want to try and get back to some normality with dad going back to work. He says his children have been so supportive and helpful with their Mum. He is applying to a children’s young carers’ charity to ensure his they receive the opportunity to gain a break from their caring responsibilities and spend time with other children and to enjoy a normal childhood
