This week, we’d like to help a 4 year old boy who has been placed in the care of his grandma and grandpa.
Blake’s mum and dad haven’t seen him since he was a toddler. He has been receiving shared care between his uncle and grandparents, however, his uncle is going through a really tough time with his mental health and sadly isn’t able to care for him now.
Blake’s grandparents are now looking after him full-time. They are happy to have him, but it is a struggle for them at the moment.
The grandpa recently had a severe heart attack and the grandma is also not in good health and has had to leave her job to care for Blake. They have little money, and have fallen behind on bills so they haven’t been able to provide Blake with the things they would like to.
Their family supporter worker said: “They have the best interests of their grandson at the heart of everything they do. Anything that can be done to help would be truly wonderful.”
With your help, we'd like to provide what they need.
