    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    Gabriel Sanford is 5 and has Autism. The Local Authority in Worcestershire are refusing his legal rights to a Mainstream Education although his Education, Health and Care plan says he deserves one. Gabriel was bullied in his previous school, called a "Stupid, Black Kid" and worse by an older pupil. Having removed him from that abusive atmosphere his Dad, the composer and musician Peter Sanford, is being co-erced into sending Gabriel to a Special School despite the Council knowing this would be totally unsuitable for the little boy's needs.

    Gabriel is the most wonderful child, and bright too. He has limited, but emerging, speech and some emotional issues. He has the right to an education and a future. Just like any other child.

    While the Council torment this family with paperwork, politics and delays they have told Peter that they will not release funding already allocated to Gabriel to help with his special needs as he is Home Educated. The reason he is home-edded is because the Council refuse to send him to a school that will meet his needs. This behaviour is illegal and immoral.

    Please help us to fund some private education and therapy for Gabriel.

    Both the Local Authority and Gabriel's other parent have the funds to help Gabriel but both refuse.

    Meanwhile the progress Gabriel has made in his previous mainstream school may be lost while the LA play politics with his schooling and funding.

    Many thanks,

    Peter and Gabriel Sanford
