A MOTHER of a wheelchair-bound boy who cannot walk or talk is campaigning for specially-adapted home for him.

Carol Broadbent, 32, says her Incommunities house in Shirley Place, Wyke, is too small for her partner and three children to live in and is not specially adapted for her son, Logan Beaumont, five, who suffered a seizure in May 2016.

Logan, who was four at the time, developed a red rash on his face and the following day he had a seizure at home which lasted two-and-a-half hours.

He was initially taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary and then Leeds General Infirmary for treatment, but Miss Broadbent says doctors have still not diagnosed the cause of the seizure and even said he would die.

But Logan’s health improved and is now well enough to go to Chellow Heights Special School.

Miss Broadbent have called for the Council and Incommunities to move her family from their three-bedroom home which she says is too small for them. Both organisations say they are working with the family.

She was forced to give up her job as a cleaner to look after Logan full-time.

Logan shares a bedroom, which contains a hospital bed, with his brother Lucas, seven, while their sister Lexi, three, has a separate bedroom.

She added the house is not fitted with any hoists or ramps to help with Logan’s wheelchair, which means she and her partner, Michael Beaumont, have to carry Logan in and out of his wheelchair.

She said: “We are really struggling. It is getting really, really difficult now. We definitely have to move.

“We have waited for something to happen for two years now. Logan is getting bigger and bigger, so he is harder for us to carry around. It is really hard.”

An Incommunities spokesperson said: “We fully appreciate the needs of the family to find a suitable adapted property locally and are working with the Council to endeavour to meet their needs.

“The family have stated they want to stay in the Wyke area. Unfortunately, although we have identified a number of family-sized properties to date, these have not been suitable for conversion to an adapted home to meet their long term housing needs.

“We are actively looking at all options to help them.”

A Council spokesman said: “We sympathise with the needs of this family and we are supporting them with their housing application.

“The family has acute and specific needs which the Council and Incommunities have been working together to try and find a solution as soon as possible.”
