We received an application from the mother of a 10 year old boy who has cerebral palsy. The boy, a full-time wheelchair user, is hoisted for all transfers. He uses an aid and Makaton to communicate. His mum's request to ACT was for help to fund a hoist capable of transferring him from his wheelchair to the outside hot tub he uses to treat painful spasms in his lower limbs. ACT were pleased to be able to pledge a £1,500 donation to help the family with the cost of an appropriate hoist which was fully supported by his OT.
