I am trying to raise money to help my partner who has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair, his speech and movement is effected but he is very independent and he has this huge heart and goes out of his way to help others when he is struggling himself. The local council has neglected his needs, he requires his home to be rewired as he can't reach the sockets on the wall and struggles to cook meals, the council has let his house fall into disrepair with the garden falling to ruins, kitchen cabinets falling off, oven not work, an electric cooker that is too high to work with, the floors are pulling up, the tile bars are bent upwards which makes it difficult to get his wheelchair in and out of certain areas of the house, the door have no handles, the windows need replaced, there is no proper shower facility and the council have just left him in that state and have refused to help him yet a drug addict or alcoholic would get everything with the flick of a wrist. I want to be able to help him with everything and give him the home he deserves, me and his family are trying to help but the council keeps pushing us away. Giving my partner his dream home would build his confidence and allow him to enjoy life and be able to function without crying out for help. I love him more than anything and want to do everything in my power to help him and hopefully help others in this situation because it's not fair he doesn't deserve to be treated this way, he's a good man.

About the fundraiser
I want to be able to beat the system and help put a stop to the people who abuse their power by neglecting people with disabilities and be able to help those who don't get help with mental illnesses and victims of abuse.
