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.
My child has been offered a place at college. Unfortunately due to her studying a level 5 course I am no longer entitled to child tax credits or child benefit for her. As she's under 18 she isn't entitled to a bursary or a grant. I think that further education should be accessible to everyone not just the rich. I don't want my child to miss out. Any donation would be appreciated as it would go towards buying her the studying items that she needs for her course and also travel to and from college. Can't believe that even though it's only a national level that she will be studying as it's above level 3 there is no support for her whatsoever. Education should be accessible to everyone. Thank you for taking the time to read my story & thanks in advance for any help. It's really appreciated.

About the fundraiser
Dunfermline, Fife, United Kingdom
I am a hard working single parent. I have always put my kids first and have encouraged them to stay in education. Unfortunately the way the system is set up in the uk anything course above level 3 means that you are no longer entitled to help. I don't think this is right!
