#302 Jane, Ian and Evan

Request: Donations / Gifts / Messages

This week, we’d like to help a couple called Jane and Ian, and their son Evan.

Jane was abused when she was child and then experienced domestic abuse as a young adult. She lives with a severe back injury and also has depression.

Her new partner, Ian, helps to care for her, but he also has his own health issues. Ian has seizures, which affect his memory, and isn’t able to work at the moment.

Their 10 year old son, Evan, is autistic and needs a high level of care. He has aggressive outbursts and is being seen by Great Ormond Street for eating and soiling issues.

They were nominated by their family support worker who said they are dealing with so much at the moment, they’re struggling financially, and they just really deserve something nice in their lives.

Evan’s bedroom in is need of repairs and decoration, and the flooring in their house is badly damaged and dangerous. Jane is going to be sleeping downstairs due to her back problems, and is need of a sofa bed. She also needs a mobility scooter, as she struggles to walk even short distances at the moment, which really limits what they can do as a family.

We’d like to help.
