Jeff Brazier’s Brother Has CP

December 13, 2010

TV presenter Jeff Brazier’s 25-year-old brother Spencer has cerebral palsy and has always been cared for by their mother, Jeanette.

Jeff admits this hasn’t left her much time to herself, and it was something he set out to change earlier this year. He took three weeks out of his usual schedule and, followed by a BBC 3 film crew, he tried to help Spencer gain more direction and independence, and so take some of the pressure off their mother.

Speaking to the BBC video series Cause Celeb, Jeff talks openly about the challenges people with disabilities and their families face, and of his naivete in thinking his intervention would run smoothly.

Jeff Brazier: Me and My Brother can be seen on BBC 3 at 2100 GMT on Thursday 16 December.

    This is great well done Jeff for hilighting the fact that young disabled people need to be recognised and have young people around them you are a great role model.I have been involved with Cool2care for three years now, we are a non profit making social enterprise, with 18 offices across the UK,we recruit train and place PA’s with a youthful outlook who want to have fun, so disabled young people can enjoy and access activities to live life to the full, just as Spencer is now.

    If he cares so much about his relationship with his younger brother, why did he feel the need to do this with cameras present?…
