Adaptive clothing range

My name is Claire Sturman and I am a Mum of a boy with additional needs.

Our son has cerebral palsy and as a result we have had real difficulty finding clothes that will accommodate AFOs, have arms that will fit, are comfortable for him and are in trend with his peers. He has also had surgery twice, both times requiring a hip spica and finding trousers to fit was nigh on impossible.

Our experiences have made us think that there must be other families out there who have children/young people with additional needs and find clothes shopping difficult. We are looking to set up an online clothing business to address this issue and to provide children and young people with adapted clothes that are easy to put on, meet their needs but are on trend with their peers.

We need to determine if there is a need for adaptive clothing before we can progress with the business. I have produced a survey and was wondering if it would be possible to post it on your Facebook page for families to complete in order to gain an understanding of the problems families face with clothing and if there is a need for adaptive clothing.

Covid Pandemic

Photo Inserted In April 2020, Healthwatch Lincolnshire invited the public to tell us how the Covid-19 pandemic was affecting them, both in terms of accessing healthcare services and personally with their emotional and mental health needs. The results were shared locally and nationally with healthcare organisations which helped them better understand the impact Covid19 was having on people.

It is important that healthcare services better understand what is working well and where they need to focus their resources to help people. It is also useful to tell the system how people have managed to help themselves, and ways you might have found to cope and more resilient.Here is another chance to have your say Link Icon
