'He's a prisoner in his own home'...mum's two-year fight for disabled son

A mum claims her disabled son is at risk of injuring himself every time he leaves the house following a two-year battle to get a drop kerb installed outside their home in Oldham.

Michelle Robinson, 46, says her son Terry, who has a genetic bone disorder, feels like a 'prisoner in is own home' as he has become too afraid to leave the house. The 26-year-old has brittle bones and worries the force of dropping his wheelchair on to the pavement could cause him to break something.

Terry currently only leaves the house for essential reasons, as Michelle claims she has been continuously passed around since raising the issue with her housing association, First Class Homes, after moving into their home in Failsworth two years ago.

She claims she has had to battle to get her housing association to accept responsibility, and says despite being told the work would start at the beginning of this year, neither of the pathways outside her house have been changed. First Class Homes say they 'understand how upsetting the situation is' for Michelle and her son, and added that they 'appreciate her frustration at the delay.'

Terry was born with a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta severe Type 3. He is unable to sit up on his own and requires the use of a wheelchair. Michelle says he won't leave the house without her as he doesn't have the confidence to go out on his own.

"Ever since we got the house in June 2020 we've been asking for them to drop the kerbs so many times but we are just getting passed around," she said, speaking to the Manchester Evening News .

"Oldham Council said they couldn't do anything about it because it is not their property, but when
