This project is vital for Vinnie's mental health and wellbeing, which has a knock on effect on the rest of the family. This project will benefit Vinnie and the rest of the family immensely. We were awarded a disabled facilities grant from the local authority but unfortunately this doesn't cover the works needed. We tried to get a top up grant but were rejected. So now there is a shortfall of £8,000 which needs to be paid upfront before the works start approx end Jan 2018.
Vinnie is 12 years old. He has Autism, Global Development Delay, Hyper-mobility and Hyper-sensitivity. At the moment Vinnie shares a bedroom with his teenage brother which causes him much distress. Vinnie needs his own space and somewhere to go when he needs quiet time. Vinnie is generally a very happy boy and needs a strict routine. Vinnie is very delayed in communication, motor skills and social skills. We are working very hard with Vinnie to develop these skills along with trying to make him as independant as he can be. Vinnie does need his own bedroom and wet room to help towards his development.
Vinnie hates too many people and is oversensitive to noise, touch and smell.
Vinnie loves to be surrounded by all his belongings. He loves his pet cornsnake Samuel.
Just an update to let everyone know whats happening with Vinnie's project. There has been a major delay in starting the works due to unexpected asbestos roof tiles. This has all been dealt with and works should be commencing June 2019. Fingers Crossed !!!
This project has been in process for nearly a year. When the works start in January 2018 they will take roughly 6-8 weeks to complete.
