    Hi @nads - Welcome to the community. There's some information here on Scope that may possibly be of some use, or give you ideas about where to get a carer for your son. See: https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/finding-a-carer-for-your-child/
    Perhaps other parents here may also be able to help. Please let us know how you get on, and if there's anything else we can support you with.

    Hi @nads and welcome to the Community.  I am another Community Champion.  I would recommend contacting local advocacy charities for guidance locally.  I know that some Councils will put information on their websites about carers organisations that are available to local residents.  Good luck.
