A MUM who campaigned to be able to move her disabled son to an adapted home is still waiting - four years on.

Mum-of-three Ruby Nash marched through Barry town centre in 2014 to stand up for her four-year-old son Cody Froud who was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy in April 2013.

Following the march, Ms Nash, now 30, was told she and her family could live in one of four adapted bungalows the Vale was building off Skomer Road, in Gibbonsdown, Barry.

The family were told their St Catherine’s Court home was unsuitable and they needed a safe and secure environment - so they were moved to Cwm Talwg.

Now they face a hospital bed being installed in the living room while six-month-old son Benjamin begins to crawl.

Oak Field Primary School pupil Cody, eight, faces becoming permanently wheelchair bound as his genetic condition progressively makes his muscles weaken. He has difficulty standing, climbing and running and undergoes regular physiotherapy and hospital tests indicate deterioration.

Ms Nash said: “We were meant to be in last Christmas. We are playing ‘delayed, delayed, delayed’ and I just want a home. I feel awful knowing I’m putting my child in danger. I feel as a mother I should be making his life as good as possible.”

A Vale council spokesman said there was nothing appropriate for Ms Nash’s very specialist needs within its existing housing stock so the council was building a bespoke property, tailored specifically for her individual requirements.

“Ms Nash was always aware that the construction of such a property would take time, though there have been some unforeseen delays in the project due to difficulties in finding a suitable developer,” he said. “Pre-site work involving the construction of a new entrance to the car park and new road to the residential area is now under way, and we anticipate the entire project should take 70 weeks, meaning an estimated completion date of October next year.

“In the meantime, the council will arrange for an occupational therapist to visit Ms Nash in her current property to determine if any adaptations can be made to it to make her life easier.”

The authority said it would continue to review the situation and liaise if a a more suitable property become available.
