Fighting for her autistic sons

Watch the film

Hayley Moran from Wythall in Worcestershire wants to make her home safe for her two young sons, who have autism.
But she is struggling to find the £30,000 she needs because the boys don't qualify for grants unless they are registered as disabled.
The National Autistic Society says that thousands of families are struggling to get their needs properly recognised - because the people who assess their needs haven't been properly trained, and they have to fight their way through acres of red tape.
You can hear Hayley talking to Victoria Derbyshire on Radio 5 live on Friday 7 August from 10 am. Or catch up later at Victoria's blog .
