Disability charity The Edmund Trust appeals for help after thieves steal £2,000 of tools
A charity has been left devastated after thieves stole £2,000 of tools from a workshop in an area of supported living homes in Milton.
The workshop, which is located among a cluster of supported living homes in Milton, belongs to The Edmund Trust.
The trust specialises in person-centred and outcome focused support for people with learning disabilities, autism or an acquired brain injury.
The tools were being used to carry out much-needed repairs on the properties.
Chief executive officer John Ellis said: "The thieves came in at night and as well as taking around £2,000 worth of tools that we use to ensure the day to day maintenance of our properties, they had no regard for the vulnerability of the people we support within their own homes.
“It is very upsetting that this has happened. It has had a huge impact on us. It is frustrating that people could do this.”
The charity is appealing for any offer of support that local businesses may be able to provide which could help in replacing the tools as quickly as possible.
