Many families we help come to us following a medical mistake or accident that has left their child disabled or unable to live a normal life.
Sadly, we can’t turn back the clock. But the financial security we help them gain can provide access to specialist care, equipment and therapies that make a real difference to their child’s life. It can also help with adapting a house or finding more suitable accommodation, as well as getting the child the help and support they need at the best school for them. As the child gets older and becomes an adult we can also ensure that their future and finances are secure so they can live as independent a life as possible.
