My story

[p]Everyone is always striving for perfection, the perfect looks, life and also perfect children! [/p][p]When I had my first child I soon realised that he was not like other children but different. In society the whole notion of othering difference has always held dominance and somehow accepted. Regardless of the difference my child in my eyes is the most perfect and amazing child ever![/p][p]As a parent of two children with Autism I have to take active responsibility in raising awareness for children with disabilities. Raise awareness for them to be treated with equality, given equal rights and accepted by all for them to have a opportunity in life.[/p][p]Right now, people with a learning disability face inequalities in every area of life with almost 1 in 3 young people with a learning disability spending less than 1 hour outside their home on a typical Saturday. [/p][p]They face barriers finding a job, accessing activities in their local community and receiving good quality healthcare. We tackle these issues head on by providing support in a way that meets individual needs and encourages greater independence. [/p][p]We give expert advice and information that empowers people and their families. And we campaign relentlessly for changes that brings greater equality for people with a learning disability.[/p][p]By supporting Team Mencap you will be helping us to support people with a learning disability to live the life they choose, and do the things they love.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Mencap. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. [/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
