Mobility for Little Kit
Accessibility and mobility for little boy in wheelchair
Little Kit was an able child until he suffered a seizure at 18 months. Now age four, he cannot walk, talk or crawl.
The Axis Foundation’s donation of £7,000 creates an accessibility ramp for the family home.
“We’re so grateful, you have no idea what this will do for our family (especially Kit!)” – Katherine, Kit’s mother
More about Kit
Kit was an able child until he was 18 months old in 2021, when he suffered a 2-hour long seizure. This caused significant brain damage and visual impairment. Kit is now four. He cannot walk, talk or crawl and needs constant care and hoisting.
His family have struggled to pay the cost of adapting their home after this devastating event: they plan to build an extension with fully hoisted bedroom, bathroom and storage area.
They needed to build an access path and ramp as part of these adaptations – and also so that Kit can use his motobility vehicle. The Trustees of the Axis Foundation were delighted to help the family.
As his mother Katherine says: “We’re desperate to keep our son at home with us: but without the path we’re not allowed the extension and without the extension he will not be allowed to live with us (in the future).
“We want to give him the best life we can.”
