Although it seems that these are extreme situations, they are common among the children we support. None of it is their fault, but they’re dealing with worries far too heavy for such young shoulders.
Jenna’s dad sustained an acquired brain injury and life has never been the same.
When Quarriers support workers see families affected by an acquired brain injury, they’re often at crisis point. It’s overwhelming for the children – suddenly they might have to be quiet in the house, there might be no more going to the park, no more bedtime stories.
When a brain injury hits, people’s lives change dramatically, including their income. Even before coronavirus, the idea of a day out was beyond the wildest dreams of Jenna’s family.
Jenna has said her wish would be for a day at the zoo.
To have a normal family day out would be an important part of the rehabilitation for everyone. While we don’t know when that might happen, we want to make it happen as soon as it’s possible.
We need your help to get this family the break they need, and give Jenna a memorable childhood experience.
If we exceed the money needed, then your donation will be used where it’s needed most within Quarriers.
