Harry’s Story

Harry is only 3 and has spent most of his life in hospital due to his life limiting condition. He has undiagnosed Neuromuscular Disorder and Global Development Delay with respiratory and feeding difficulties. He now has a care package set up and will be able to come home to live with his parents and elder brother. Harry’s mum has had to stop working as he needs two carers at all times.

He has been given a functional chair to help with his development but sadly an easy chair is not available from public funds. Harry’s hypotonia (floppy baby syndrome) and muscle weakness means that he desperately needs a specialised seating system. His Occupational Therapist suggested a P Pod chair would be of immense help.

We made a grant of £500 towards Harry’s P Pod chair, which will greatly aid posture management and improve his comfort at home.
