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.
Firstly let me thank you for taking your time to read and help fund people with disabilities. I have currently joined a voluntary group that helps assist Disability people with daily living life, most importantly supporting them in every way possible. I have set up a go fund me account to be able to support disability people in a way where they feel great, happy and loved. I have noticed that people with disabilities have a very low percentage of confidence and being able to socialize with people so my aim is to fund enough money to be able to manage events for people with disabilities this will enable them to open their minds more, it enables them to socialize and not find it difficult. I will be arranging fun, outgoing, sociable and confidence boosting activities for them. It is important that we all appreciate everything and everyone in this world and that no one should be discarded or made to be felt different. please support me on my journey to helping lovely people thank you.
What is disability?
A disability is any continuing condition that restricts everyday activities. The Disability Services Act (1993) defines ‘disability’ as meaning a disability:
which is attributable to an intellectual, psychiatric, cognitive, neurological, sensory or physical impairment or a combination of those impairments
which is permanent or likely to be permanent
which may or may not be of a chronic or episodic nature
which results in substantially reduced capacity of the person for communication, social interaction, learning or mobility and a need for continuing support services.
Types of disability
The main categories of disability are physical, sensory, psychiatric, neurological, cognitive and intellectual. Many people with disability have multiple disabilities.
A physical disability is the most common type of disability, followed by intellectual and sensory disability. Physical disability generally relates to disorders of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems.
Sensory disability involves impairments in hearing and vision.
Neurological and cognitive disability includes acquired disability such as multiple sclerosis or traumatic brain injury. Intellectual disability includes intellectual and developmental disability which relate to difficulties with thought processes, learning, communicating, remembering information and using it appropriately, making judgments and problem solving. Intellectual disability is the result of interaction between developmentally attributable cognitive impairment, attitudinal and environmental barriers.
Psychiatric disorders resulting in disability may include anxiety disorders, phobias or depression.
