Romilly's story Romilly lives with her mum Clare, dad Adrian and sister Astrid in London. Diagnosed as severely visually impaired from birth, Romilly initially got excellent support for her education. When Romilly reached school age, the support she received dropped dramatically. It was down to her parents to fight for the support she needed. Romilly now receives support from a specialist teaching assistant and a habilitation specialist, but this support was threatened recently when, due to budget cuts, the local authority looked to remove most of the funding Romilly relies on.
