Our 2m Independence Lift in action

on BBC One's DIY SOS

It was a privilege to volunteer, not only a lift but our time as well, to contribute to allowing 13 year old Charlie to stay at home with his family.

Born with cerebral palsy and developmental delay, Charlie requires round the clock care, which his mum Jenny has given up work to provide. Scott and Jenny were childhood sweethearts, together from 16 years old, and now as a family of five, struggle with everyday life in their two-up, two-down end-of terrace home.

We travelled to Dartford to join the DIY SOS team and install our 2m Independence Lift to provide Charlie with much greater access throughout his home. The change this will make to their daily lives, both now and in the future, can clearly be seen.

The family can now truly live together in a home designed for all their needs.
