Help advice for my son

LadyshippersLadyshippers Member Posts: 2 Listener
I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I can't see the categories very well on my phone.

My son is disabled and lives alone. He has major problems with his spine affecting both back and neck. He's been trying to improve his home and did have some help from a friend but not now. He needs help to move boxes and some furniture but doesn't know where to turn.. 

Any ideas, suggestions etc., would be very welcome.

Helen

    Hi and welcome,

    I'm a community champion here scope. I'm sorry to hear your son is having difficulties. Is this moving furniture and boxes around his current home, rather than moving house? If so then does he have another friend that could help him? Ir maybe a family member?

    If he doesn't then try searching is area to see what handy men are available to help. Facebook or gumtree is usually a good place to start. Unfortunately, he will most likely need to pay for any help he receives from people like this.
