Life-changing support

These are quotes from carers of disabled children…
 
“For me, this group makes a huge difference to my life; I’m a single parent and I have no family nearby to help me.  I have confidence now for Y to go to the Saturday respite group knowing that she is with children with a similar condition where the staff understand her needs and I can get some respite.  It’s really invaluable for me and Y.”  
 
“The day trips that Khaas offer have really helped me; I was scared to take my disabled son on long car journeys.  Not only is it a long drive for my husband but the car is small and I was very scared as to how my son would react in a small car for so long . . . you can’t just stop on the motorway if he gets frightened or distressed.  Being able to go as a whole family on a coach, with other families in similar circumstances was really helpful and I knew I had their support if I needed it. The coach is spacious and I didn’t have the fear my son being in a small car and needing to stop.  I am now confident that he can travel for a long journey – it’s just not a big deal now, and there are other families there to support me.”
 
“I have learnt to sew, cook healthy meals.  My English has improved a lot also.” 
 
“I exercise more, go out more independently.  I have made friends.”  
 
“I feel very confident by attending sessions, and tend to go out a bit more.”
