Patricia had worked in an administrative role at a nuclear site in the 1980’s. Both Patricia and her husband were now retired. Her husband Jim suffered from a debilitating illness.
The basis of their application was for assistance with a specialist motor riser recliner chair. Although they were in receipt of some state benefits, having approached their Local Authority, they had been advised that this was not something that they could help with.
Based on supporting information provided by the couple (including Occupational Therapist recommendations), the Fund awarded a grant to enable them to purchase the chair which would improve Jim’s quality of life.
