Roheel, a Project Manager from Bristol, was admitted to hospital following sudden onset of back pain and lower limbs weakness.
He was diagnosed with paralysis from a lumbar spinal cord injury, and when discharged 3 months later, became reliant on a wheelchair. Moving back home was challenging for Roheel, as his house was not equipped for his disability. The hospital was able to provide a bed for him to sleep downstairs, but he urgently needed a downstairs bathroom to be fitted to meet his needs. Roheel turned to RBF for help, and we were able to provide a grant to support him with home adaption costs.
