Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am trying to set up a home based occupational therapy centre to provide assessment and treatment interventions for children and young people with daily life skill and sensory processing difficulties e.g. children with autistic spectrum conditions and developmental coordination disorder (DCD).
The centre will also be used to provide mentorship and supervision to other clinicians and to staff supporting children with additional needs.
Any monies raised will be used to construct and furnish a therapy lodge in my rear garden, complete with therapy equipment, toys and specialist assessment kits.
If the full amount is not raised, then any monies donated will go towards the purchase of therapy equipment and specialist assessment kits;. these items will then be used to deliver services within children's own homes.
I am dedicated and driven to provide this child centred occupational therapy service, as families are currently struggling to access the appropriate level of interventions through local statutory bodies.
