Quadraplegic Cerebral Palsy

My grand daughter Sophie is now 12 yrs old. She was born with CP due to hospital negligence.Sophie has just had spinal surgery and leg surgery and can only see and hear, nothing else for herself. Her mum does everything else for her 24/7,365...

Sophie has to have a special air bed which is costing my daughter a lot of money to run, plus electric suction pump and electric hoists throughout the house.

My question is can my daughter get any help towards all this extra electricity costs?

She is a single parent and her other child has ADHD. Any help will be appreciated.

  • Hi there! I am a journalist filming a TV documentary about Cerebral Palsy for my dissertation - Looking for multiple case studies about how funding is difficult and how people are coping. It would be nice to see some case studies of real people getting through their difficulties and to speak out about their experiences to promote the cause and help other people get through it. If this is something you would be interested in helping me with feel free to get in touch with me.
