Charley's legacy: Fife woman turns own home into respite centre

A Fife woman who is turning her own home into a respite centre says she is keeping her daughter's legacy alive.

Jacqui Lowrie from Glenrothes lost her daughter Charley two years ago, after caring for her for 20 years.

Charley is the oldest person to have lived in Scotland with a condition called Edward syndrome.

Her mother says she understands the pressures other carers can face.

Jacqui says she often struggled to leave her daughter in someone elses care when she needed to rest - and that's why she's setting up Trusted Breaks.

The facility aims to offer day care and respite care to support other people with disability and complex needs.
