it made all the difference to have someone who was prepared to listen to us

“When we sent the letter that CASCAIDr had put together, we did get a response from the Council. It helped to show them that the points we were making about R were valid, and made a case for R to attend the education trust for an additional two days. The council is now funding two days and R is funding a third. His day care place elsewhere on a Friday is also funded now. This arrangement is likely to continue until he is at least 25. It would have been highly detrimental for him to be left unoccupied for most of the week as had been the case for most of last year. This put his progress back for a time that he is only now regaining. He now enjoys living at his supported living for the most part – he has a friend there who looks out for him. Thank both of you for helping with the letter that seems to have had a positive effect for R. I enjoyed my conversations with your caseworker and it made all the difference to have someone who was prepared to listen to us after the negativity we’d had from Social Services.”
