I can't remember if we suggested CarersLine to you or not. CarersLine is our free advice line for carers - its open Weds and Thurs 10-12 and 2-4pm. If there is a way for you to get this help then they should be able to find it. The number is freephone 0808 808 7777.
Let us know how you get on.

just a quick update .we have been in touch with local counsil highways department and they have said because we have a blue badge that the cost would be half price .which is still nearly Ã‚Â£500 .but better then full price.we have yet to have been able to contact the carers helpline but will be doing so nxt weds and hope they know of any others help or grants to have the work done.

We were recently told by an OT from the Council that Social Services can arrange for kerb dropping so it might be worth contacting them to see if they can help. Good luck.
