Personal Grant winner

Alistair McLennan

OneFamily customer, Alistair from Leicester, decided to apply for a Personal Grant to transform the life of his eight year old son, Gregor who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

"There wasn’t a space in the house where Gregor could retreat, to calm down when he felt upset or stressed, which would often make situations worse." Alistair, Gregor's father.

The Personal Grant has been spent on building a unique space outside for Gregor, complete with sensory equipment and toys. It gives Gregor his own safe and calming area at home that he can enjoy and engage with, especially when he feels anxious or uncomfortable.
