Thank you for your viewing my campaign.
Because of our unique set of circumstances, I am reaching out for anyone who can help make it possible for my family to see my 9 year old daughter who lives over 200 miles away from us.
She was born in West Yorkshire in late 2010. Unfortunately I had to leave in order to escape a traumatic and difficult relationship.
Ever since I have rarely been able to see her because of the finances needed to travel the distances involved,
In 2014 I moved to the south to be with my partner, where I have lived for over 5 years. At the beginning of 2018 we have had the joy of bringing into the world our lovely daughter.
My eldest daughter now lives with a lovely foster family in Yorkshire due circumstances around her care and her special needs of a child with ASD.
Why we need help
After recently seeking financial help with visits, the local authority has said that they can only source funds for me to go on my own and this might change if any cuts have to be made due to changes in the economic climate.
While this help is welcome, I feel disappointed because it doesn’t take into account that we are a family and my partner and toddling daughter also must be allowed the opportunity to see her.
Because of my partner’s support needs a PA also needs to come with us to help and we are struggling to get support from the local council to allow this without compromising on support for the rest of the month.
We feel that finances should not be a barrier to us all spending time with her and for our daughter to see her older sister.
We all feel that for our daughter to be able see her own sister regularly to see her grow up.
How you can help
I have set this campaign up so that my partner, our daughter and her assistant to can travel up and stay a few days, for roughly 6 times a year.
I’m hoping to raise money for my partner, our daughter and her PA to support us.
I want to thank you for taking the time to read this and anything you can spare. Any amount large or small that you are able to spare will go to the following.
- Train tickets
- A modest Hotel for the four of us all to stay a few nights.
- Transportation during visit
If you cannot afford to donate to me, please share this on social media or wherever you can
