Story

Please read all: On behalf of Benjamin carpenter (Ben) and his amazing family! Ben is in the process of having an extension built into the family house, to accommodate space for the children with this he is wanting to create a Designated area (sensory room) To support the children’s needs. Bens 6 children are adopted and very much loved! A sensory room will help the children with sensory issues, developmental disabilities and learning difficulties. The room gives the children a special place to escape to and feel safe and secure in. With a room designed specifically for their needs, the children have control over what they want to interact with. For bens children it’s is a real must for there needs and a place of their own so they can experience the things we take for granted. All the children have shown improvements from sensory rooms however it would benefit and prove better if the children had the same environment at home to keep up there developments and socialisation! However the room obviously comes with a price of around £10,000 + ! Ben has 6 children, Jack 12, Ruby 9, Lilly 7, Joseph 4, Noah 3 and Jude 22 months old. All 6 children have a large range of additional / complex needs to name a few: Autism, Severe learning difficulties, mobility issues, Down’s syndrome, profound deafness, gastronomy care / fed, registered blind, epilepsy, stoma care, cerebral palsy, the list goes on. Aside of Ben caring for the children he volunteers his time as an adoption panel member finding families for the thousands of children that are in need of their forever families these may include children with additional/complex needs. Most people in UK and some world wide may be aware ben has done many media appearances to promote Adoption and its all joys (in bens opinion) He has featured on this morning, The One Show, Jane McDonald and friends, local news channels, and many newspaper and magazines. His story has somewhat inspired people worldwide and he has daily messages from people all over the world stating how Ben has inspired them to want To adopt a child (even a child with an additional/complex needs). He is a single gay dad and has had to overcome a lot of negative mindsets from the public. Ben goes about his daily life, caring for the children, back and forth from hospital and other appointment to ensue the children has everything they need! He goes above and beyond for all his children, they all have exactly the same love and attention! I have personally seen the children grow and develop into the children they are today! Ben goes above and further for his children and has surprised all medical professionals with how the children have developed given their bleak prognosis since they have been in bens care! They improve daily and have gone past goals Ben was told they ‘wont’ do! He never gives up! So the down side it is £10,000 to build the amazing room and include all the interiors for the children!

*UPDATE* 18th november 2019 - On a sad note I’m here to inform you all that sadly yesterday (18th nov) at 3:30pm Noah (2years old) passed away! It’s had great impact on Ben and the children and Ben is doing his best to support the children with their emotions! Understandably ben need time to greave, thank you for the lovely messages. In memory of Noah Ben would like to create sensory garden for the children. Thank you!
