Birmingham, UK

What is crowdfunding?

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.


It hit me "The only way for me to access education to further help others needing primary care, would mean getting access to funding- otherwise, very few people with my background would ever become a counsellor" hence this education funding campaign was born. - Romario Wanliss

Share a Story, Save a Life, is my motto in life. Birth from a dark emotional place it's the permission I gave myself to keep going.

To strengthen the way I continue to fulfil that mission, I am training to become a counsellor specifically engaging with some of the estemated 8 million people working through anxiety and depression.

Currently freelancing as a Storytelling Creative Director, Dj and Speaker in my first year while on Universal Credit to support any financial gaps, your support means I get a seat at the table sooner than later to begin saving lives in the Mental Health sector.

100% of the fund goes to educational and Travel support needs during my term time.

You will always be updated monthly on my education journey via a newsletter rich with videos, pictures and/or written words.

Included in the updates will be information on how my qualification is impacting my work, supporting the mission, how your donation has been spent and other relevant topics..


Phase 1 Funding -

- You can donate anonymously

- £500 secures me a place on a CPCAB accredited Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills course (Deadline August 2018)

- £1100 pays for the entire 30 weeks Level 2 course fee

- £500 provides me with a bus pass for the term of the study time.

Phase 2 Funding -

- Level 4 (a 2-year study) will allow me to become a Trainee Counsellor, though I can continue to work as a Life coach for those experiencing mild anxiety & depression.
