This week, we’d like to help a 3 year old boy called Edmund and his mum, Jenny.
Edmund’s dad had cancer and sadly died just before Christmas. He and his mum have been living in a small flat above a shop, with no outside space.
It’s been really tough on Edmund. He is autistic and is non-verbal. He has no awareness of danger and needs constant 1 to 1 support. He also desperately needs outdoor space, so lockdown was particularly hard for both of them. Edmund was cooped up and frustrated, and Jenny was grieving and trying to care for him on her own
Their support worker has managed to help them to secure a council house with a small garden, which is great news. But they are due to move in next week and it has no cooker and no carpet.
We’d like to help with these things, and also provide some toys and sensory items for Edmund’s new garden
