Nick Knowles and the team issue a call to arms and recruit friends, family and local trades to help transform the homes of families across Britain.
Rachel and Andy Smith's middle child Isaac has spastic quadriplegia, a severe form of cerebral palsy and Andy or Rachel must be available at all times to care for him because he sleeps fitfully in a hospital bed in the family living room. It's making family life stressful including for Isaac's siblings as the design of their home is in conflict with what this family really need.
The DIY SOS team and hundreds of volunteers turn the Smiths' lives around by building an amazing extension and a beautifully landscaped garden.
This week the DIY SOS team join forces with two world-famous British institutions: Great Ormond Street Hospital For Children and the Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show, as Nick Knowles and the team transport Chris Beardshaw's gold medal-winning garden across London and crane it over buildings and rebuild on the hospital's roof top.
Despite the brilliant world-class care, there's nowhere private outside for the families to escape from the constant noise, bustle and bright lights of this huge hospital, which is why the DIY SOS team and Chris Beardshaw have taken on this hugely ambitious build. The logistics are tricky and the volunteers emotional, but they hope to offer the many brave families a bespoke, lush roof top garden as a space of calm respite.
Nick Knowles, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and the ‘Purple Shirts' team venture to Blackpool to tackle DIY SOS: Million Pound Build for BBC Children in Need.
This special DIY SOS looks at some of the lives of the nation's young carers supported by Blackpool Carers Centre, which receives funding from BBC Children in Need.
The programme features 11 year-old Tyanna and 10 year-old Gracie, who cook, bathe and generally care for their disabled mother Suzanne, a former nurse who was diagnosed with osteoporosis, as well as their dad Sean, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
The DIY SOS team and hundreds of volunteers work tirelessly to renovate an enormous neglected site owned by the Carers Centre, from a dilapidated building to an unrecognisable, inspiring and colourful base for Tyanna, Gracie and many other youths with caring responsibilities.
