Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
NOT FINE IN SCHOOL has been created in reaction to the growing number of children who are struggling to attend mainstream school. Whether their struggle is due to anxiety, unmet Special Educational Needs, physical illness, bullying or academic pressure, many children are experiencing increasing difficulties within education systems in the UK, and in other countries around the world.
We provide support and information for families, to help them obtain appropriate provision for children & young people struggling in school.
We aim to promote policies and practices that allow parents and professionals to work in partnership.
We aim to ensure the individual needs of children and young people are recognised and met within suitable educational environments.
Within our first year we have created:
The Not Fine In School WEBSITE
Resources for Families
Resources for Professionals
Articles written by Parents, Young People & Professionals
Information, Action, & Research Pages
Surveys and Petitions
On FACEBOOK we have two closed groups and a public page
Not Fine in School: Family Support for School Refusal & Attendance Issues
Not Fine In School - Parent & Professional Alliance
Not Fine In School - Public Page - School Refusal / Attendance Difficulties
and we have a TWITTER page too
We are involved in PhD level research into parent's experiences of school refusal.
We are using political lobbying, petitions and consultations to contribute to, or develop campaigns to demand better support for families, children and improve provision and environments in schools.
