We're a family of four. Me, my husband and two children - small children - and my little boy is a disabled child.
And so we were given direct payments about a year ago. We applied when he was a baby but we were refused direct payments
And so then about a year ago we got the good news that it had gone to panel and that they had given us a few hours a week
So these are really precious to us, these hours, because that's our respite.
We have a wonderful PA carer that comes in.
She's fantastic with him. They have fun together. He really enjoys going with the carer.
They go to soft play, swimming, farms - all over really. He gets to choose where he goes with the carer, so it's a big treat
