Harley's mum Vanessa writes: Do you see loneliness or do you see freedom? This Alinker has been on many journeys and visited lots of places. It is not alone, it has a trusted companion who is sharing his adventures and letting people know that freedom is possible to those who thought their own adventures were over. The Alinker is not only a life changer, it is a life enhancer. This Alinker is not lonely nor is its faithful companion, it is merely taking a little time out before the next adventure begins on the long and exciting road to freedom. This is the way to keep moving. This is the way to break away from the loneliness and show the world you are not your disability.
She also shares: "Here in the UK when a young person like Harley reaches the age of 25 years, doors start closing even more than ever. I hope this opportunity will defy that and open new and exciting doors for him as we move forward. It’s good to have vision and hope for the future.
