Advice - Housing App.
My little boy has cp, he doesn't use his right arm or hand and the doctors don't know if he will walk yet. They say if he does walk he will struggle on steep steps and walking up and down slopes. He also suffers with epilepsy.
I want to go for a council property to try and get a flat or a bungalow as I can not afford to buy. My house is on a steep hill, its an old terrace house with extremley steep stairs and steep steps to get into the house. I am really worrying about Ben having problems getting around the house. I am tiny and have difficulty carrying ben up the stairs and getting him out of the bath etc..
I have applied to the council for grants to adjust the house and they have been refused. I don't know the best way to apply for a council house I have a community OT that has written to the council.
Is they anything I can do to help this along. I know it will take along time to get a council property but I don't want to leave it til the point where it is impossible to live in our house.
Any advice will be much appreicated
