Nascot Lawn Respite

A crucial decision for many families with disabled children in Hertfordshire is just HOURS away.

A crucial decision for many families with disabled children in Hertfordshire is just HOURS away.

Today, the board of Herts Valleys CCG will sit down at their headquarters and decide whether to CUT the funding for Nascot Lawn {in Watford}, which provides short term care to provide families respite.

Emma Turner, whose daughter Sienna uses the service, will be down outside the building later as the parents are not actually allowed in:

"They've not really told us much about what this financial meeting is, they haven't told us who is actually going to be on the board to make this decision."

The families will be dressed as detectives, she told us why:

"We are dressing as detectives because we don't know what actually is happening. We feel like they keep changing the rules as they go along."

If Nascot Lawn faces the inevitable chop meaning another respite centre is offered up to the families, Emma still has A LOT of concerns:

"I'm worried about where it's going to be; what are the facilities going to be like, are the staff trained, how is Sienna going to fit in and will she like it, what kind of stress is that going to cause me and will I EVER get a break?"
