Harry 12 Years old

Henry is a 12 year old boy with profound physical and sensory needs. He requires full adult assistance for all his mobility and care needs and is unable to move independently. Within Suffolk children such as Henry are provided with specialist seating systems that meet their needs. Unfortunately funding is only available for a single seating system within the home. The seat that Henry has is a JCM Triton chair and costs in excess of £4000; this chair is perfect for Henry for when he engages in sensory play and integrating with his family. However, Henry would benefit from a comfy-style seating system in his home environment. This is a chair that still provides optimal postural support to maintain his alignment to the best of our abilities, but in addition allows him to relax in a reclined and supportive way.

The family can have a care dog but require help with transport and accomodation costs which will be incurred when training a Sezuire response dog to help care for TJ as this will help him and his family.
