Providing emotional support to parents of severely ill or disabled children
“My name is Hayley and my son Harry is severely disabled, this is because he had strokes on both sides of his brain prior to being born. We wasn’t expecting anything to be the matter with Harry but then three days after he was born we were given the life shattering news that he had significant brain damage.
I waited to be offered some sort of emotional support but there was no support offered. This had a huge impact on our ability to cope so I decided something needs to change.
At Harry’s Pals we offer emotional support to parents who have recently had a diagnosis that their son or daughter is severely ill or disabled.” – Hayley Charlesworth – Founder, Harry’s Pals
