Carers Count

Carers Count

We’re delighted that this issue is getting attention, but doesn’t the article make sobering reading?

In our support group, a number of our adults with profound learning disabilities are in their 50s and 60s.  They live at home and their primary carers are their parents.  This means that some of the carers are in their 90s, and are providing full time, round the clock care with very little additional help.

These carers desperately need our support.  Alexandra House will offer day centre facilities and respite care, and a place that the primary carers can come and be looked after too.  They are amazing people, providing daily care for their son or daughter despite advancing years and, in many cases, ill health.

We are thrilled to have received confirmation that our application to the Charity Commission for England and Wales has been successful.   A priority is to set up our Charity bank account so that we can launch our fundraising online without delay!

We are grateful for the support of many people as we worked to reach this milestone, and look forward to many more exciting developments as project Alexandra House gets under way.
