You should be able get this free via OT. Usually it's the Occupational therapist at social services / council who organises equipment like this, not the NHS. Do you have a disabled children team social worker? Try looking at council website on their local offer for aids and equipment. They should fund something like a crelling harness. You can ask for OT assessment by council to see what equipment etc you need. We have had a large buggy on loan and some door alarms etc fitted for free. If nothing on local offer just ring social care and ask for disabled children team.
