Jasmine's Story

Jasmine aged 46 is a mother of three and lives in a rented home with her partner. She has Fibromyalgia, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Osteoarthritis which severely reduces her mobility.

She cannot walk without help and cannot go out unless accompanied. Jasmine felt like a prisoner in her own home and simply longed to go out to the local shops and regain some independence.

We were able to make a grant of £400 which went towards the cost of an electrically powered scooter.

Jasmine can now pop out whenever she wants to, shop for her family and run errands. She is no longer a prisoner in her own home.
