Hi I have a 19yr old son with Down syndrome, me my son and partner live in a two bedroomed council house, I am expecting a baby so we need more room, here comes the tough part, I wanted to apply for a disabled facility's grant to put a bedroom on the back of the house for my disabled son, but the council have said no as he is not in a wheelchair, they want to move us, but as I keep trying to explain and nobody is listening, my son would be very distressed if we had to move from his home as he calls it, he does not cope well with change and it would really upset him, last time we moved it took him five yrs to get over the stress of moving and wanting to go back to his home, I just don't know what to do, are there any other charity's we could go to where they could help us to stay where we are so my son does not get distressed. Any help you could give us would be very appreciated
