As a mother of 3 children 2 of which have disabilities life is a struggle, and unfortunately this will be the same for many thousands of families in the UK. The equipment they require just to do the simplest of things we are so grateful for but the scale and size is unreal! The bigger they get so does the equipment but the house stays the same. 

We have a housing issue in this country as we all know, but for us families it's even harder to get moved when the houses we need aren't built! All the new houses being built everywhere are lovely but they aren't suitable for families like mine. We need big areas downstairs for equipment that can be used in the whole house not just limited to one room. Bathrooms suitable for chairs, hoists and changing benches. Bedrooms for hospital type beds, room for equipment, storage for medical things let alone all the "normal" things like clothes and toys.

Currently our Occupational therapist has given us a list of things we require for our forever home to enable us to look after our children safely these are: through floor lift, wet room , storage for equipment, ramp access. These things are going to be necessary to help our family. The ideal property would be a bungalow, but we know that they are rarely built and tend to be 2 bedroom which for a family of 5 with 2 disabled children who need there own room for medical reasons it's just not big enough.

I am asking Boris Johnson and Robert Jenrick to speak with property developers as my voice and the thousands of families in the UK who need our help, we need not only affordable housing but housing for our families! Housing that we can live and care for our families in the way we deserve.
