How we have helped Grace and her family
Grace was born with a rare chromosomal disorder which means she has difficulty walking and has severe autism and hypermobility. As a result, amongst other things she finds it hard to keep calm in unfamiliar situations.
Tracey, Grace’s mum, explains one of the challenges of having a child with severe autism: “Grace really needs her own space, otherwise she can become frustrated and will take this out on those close by, which is distressing for us all.”
The overwhelming generosity of Motability’s supporters has made a huge difference to family outings. Tracey says, “Trying to fit the family in our old car was a nightmare at the best of times, but now there are no squabbles or tears ruining days out in our new car.”

If you are concerned about the amount you are gambling, (or you are concerned for a friend or relative) then the following questions may help give you some guidance:
• Has there been uncontrolled spending?
• Are significant amounts of time spent gambling?
• Has there been concealing or lying about gambling behaviour?
• Has the gambling impacted on relationships with family and friends?
• Have you noticed withdrawal from family activities?
• Is an excessive amount of time being spent on a computer?
• Have you noticed lack of apparent interests or leisure pursuits?
• Has there been absence from school, college or work?
