We're raising £40,000 to secure a mortgage for Conal and Xander Hill. They can't lose their home.every penny given to this campaign will go towards a deposit for a mortgage to secure the home of Conal & Xander to live in for the rest of their lives.

Conal and Xander Hill are 21 years old.

This is their Mother, Vicky, and their sister, Elle, writing on their behalf. We write for them because, sadly, they can’t speak for themselves. At the age of 18 months, they were diagnosed with autism so profound they couldn’t even be placed on the autistic spectrum.

Over the years we’ve all been through so much. Conal and Xander bring love and light into every single day we are here, but with that has come pain. Both boys have nearly drowned after escaping the house in the early hours of the morning. They have no concept of danger which means its vital that they have a familiar & secure environment to live out their lives in.

We recently found out that our landlords need to sell our house we have a deadline of October the 1st 2015 to raise sufficient capital to buy it or  we will lose it and become homeless.This house has been a God Send for us. For years Vicky slept on a couch in the living room so that Conal, Xander and Elle could have their own rooms. This house finally gave Vicky a luxury she hadn’t had in a long time- a bed.

This house provides enough room for the boys carers to teach them skills to be more independent, without getting in each others way.

Neither boy will ever be able to go for a walk outside alone; but because of this house, they can now make their own beds, do their own laundry, cook basic meals, garden, and take out the bins independently. These little things improve the quality of life for someone with autism so much.

Our boys are survivors. But with help, they can continue to flourish and learn, bringing joy and happiness to everyone that is fortunate to meet them.

They truly are wonderful. They’re 21 years old, and still content to sit at home and watch Winnie the Pooh on a Saturday. They never judge. They’re not cynical, or mean. Their innocence is so pure. Please help us keep them in their home.

Any donation, big or small, would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you.

(The video included was made by Elle for a University project seperate from this plea, yet we thought it gave a good insight into life with Conal & Xander)
