Weʼre raising £1,500 to help pay towards Henry's private speech therapy.
- Sompting, United Kingdom
- Disability support
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.
Henry has a severe Speech and Language disorder and requires therapy every week. He needs it 52 weeks a year but the NHS can only provide it for 12 weeks a year. (A block of 4 sessions three times a year)
To give him what he needs will cost us £3.650a year, a figure we cannot afford. We are hoping to raise half of this which will pay for 6 months therapy. He is likely to need this specialised therapy for the next three years (£10.950, doesn't bear thinking about).
Henry is the most lovable character who is trying to find his voice. He tries so hard and gives everything his all when it comes to trying to say words. It is such a big effort but he never gives up.
Help us give Henry a chance to be able to reach his goals in being able to communicate with others.
