13-year-old Josh Wills has severe autism and learning disabilities that mean he sometimes self-harms. His parents say a decision to send him to a centre 260 miles away from home has made his condition worse. Last year he bit his tongue so badly that a third of it had to be removed.
Phill and Sarah have been working alongside Mencap and the Challenging Behaviour Foundation.
They are lobbying the Government to ensure people with a learning disability and behaviour that challenges can get the support and services they need in their local communities, close to their family and friends.
NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group has met with the Wills family and says it is now working with them on a solution.
Josh has also been allocated a specialist in Cornwall to assess his needs.
The family has also launched a petition at change.org, campaigning for Josh to be moved closer to home, which has received more than 13,000 signatures.
