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.
Arranging a holiday for a disabled child or family member can be confusing, time consuming and stressful.
If you are a parent or carer of a child with Autism, Aspergers, ADHD, Tourettes or other forms of complex needs, our aim is to provide holidays that meets the needs of the whole family, not just the needs of the family member with special needs.
As parents ourselves we have had our years of not being able to go out as a family, to the local pub for a meal, to the local swimming pool for a swim or to take mainstream holidays like everyone else.
The theorists refer to this as “normal life”. However, when you are parents of a child with complex needs, the reality is that it is often very difficult to have a “normal life”
and thats why we are looking to raise funds to buy a static caravan to help others in need of a break
