The fourth family participating in the 7 Families initiative is Nikki Thornley from Scotland.
Nikki was paralysed in a motorcycle accident in 2013 that has left her unable to work since. She was a front line uniformed police officer based in Aberdeenshire and the accident means she will never be able to return to this type of work again. Nikki has spent almost a year in rehabilitation and adjusting to family life. Having been off work for almost a year she hopes to return to work in a part-time capacity.
