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.
In June 2015 our son was referred to the paediatrician due to developmental delay, since seeing the paediatrician and various other professionals our son has been diagnosed with autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorder and is under a physio for delayed motor skills. Support is limited in our 'different' family life but we are lucky to live in Belper where a local charity runs a group called Special Friends.
Special friends is an amazing charity for families in Amber Valley. I first contacted the group in July 2015.
In a world where ASD is still relatively misunderstood I was struggling for support and turned to the group. I cried to strangers who I now consider friends, with out their support along the new path our family life has taken things would have been very different. I feel like I'm thriving not just surviving, I know where to turn to on good & bad days, I've made life long friends. Professional support is openly received but sometimes there is no substitute for support from other people in the same boat who 'Get It'
On December 4th 2016 my amazing husband, brother in law and my nephews are running a 5k festive fun run along the A6 to raise money for Special Friends, if you see them on route give them a toot!
We would appreciate any small donation you feel you could afford so that we can help the group continue to support and make a difference to other families in similar circumstances.
