as many of you know I'm a volunteer advocate for people who's children have special educational needs. I volunteer for IPSEA as a tribunal advocate and also try and help as many parents as I possibly can directly who are referred to me by friends or who I meet via support groups and online. At present I don't accept anything more than the occasional coffee/expenses in order to allow as many people as possible to be helped.
I'm a single parent on benefits with three children ,with additional needs myself and have no spare cash to replace my now dead laptop.. I have tried my best to manage using my smartphone but now need to throw myself on the mercy of others and pass a virtual hat around - in the hope I can continue to help as many people as effectively as possible. I need to purchase a laptop and printer rather urgently and am hoping if people would be kind enough to donate whatever they can afford together there will be enough to buy one so I can carry on supporting families who need help and cannot afford a solicitor
many thanks in advance for your kindness everyone
