A new Wharfedale and Aireborough Christians Against Poverty client is looking for funds to create a bedroom for her three year old Autistic son. She will need to paint the room and furnish it. Her idea is to get sensory items with an ocean theme for him to engage with. The client is struggling to manage with basic bills, on Universal Credit, and is getting support from Foodbanks, as well as us. The room is currently usable and they have no money in order to make it a liveable space for their son.

L, a young man with Autism, moved out of Supported Living into his own Council flat earlier this year. Having broken his bed frame, he has been sleeping on an old mattress on the floor since he moved in. His flat is over a walkway, so the floor gets cold during the winter. His bedroom is so small that there is no space for a chest of drawers, instead he piles clothes on the mattress. A new divan base would help promote his organisational skills and mean he is warmer in bed during the winter.
