Disabled man asks for help after House Robbery

A young disabled man has had items crucial to his safety stolen from his home in Dunedin.

Joshua Perry, 24, suffers from Cerebral Palsy, and was enjoying a night out with friends before returning home to find he had been robbed.

Perry’s emergency cell phone and iPad was stolen, and he says these are the only way for him to contact the outside world in the case of an emergency. Also stolen was Perry’s brand new computer, which he uses to work from home in his job as Marketing Manager for Stopping Violence Dunedin.


Perry lives independently and has regular caregivers to assist him with personal cares, but for the most part, he lives alone.

Perry says he relies on technology to coordinate his care by communicating with his support workers and arranging the various things needed so he can live as independently as possible.
