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 have started this page because I need ongoing physio and my local NHS won't provide or fund it. I am a wheelchair user due to Cerebral Palsy and regular physio lessens its effects, reduces pain and helps to maintain function. The fact of having CP makes physio something I need, but in addition, my knees have contracted which means my legs do straighten anymore, so my need is even more urgent.
I am currently paying for physio privately, but this is putting strain on an already limited income, and I don't think, given my need, this is something I should have to pay for, (hence the page). If you understand and want to help me with this please make a donation.
I've had someone ask why I can't get physio on the NHS? So I thought I would answer here. Locally, medical professionals are arguing that I am managing my own condition because I go to the gym and swim. My condition is long term, and they are using that which I am already doing as a reason not to provide me with physio, or fund it. This is inaccurate from my perspective, because me doing other forms of exercise doesn't negate my need for physio, and I can't perform physio on myself.
