Help save Tailor Ed Foundation from closure
Tailor Ed Foundation wish is to see children with autism and their families empowered and included, able to live the lives they want to and to access all the day to day experiences that other families take for granted. After a recent funding set-back, the organisation are working hard to ensure their survival. Within the current economic climate, this is increasingly difficult.
For 2018 Tailor-Ed have:
£30,000 they can self-generate
£25,000 they can save with ‘in-kind’ contributions
£100,000 still required
Tailor Ed need commitments towards this and future years by the end of March 2018 to prevent closure.
Crowdfunding brings people together and allows them to give what they can in the new age of austerity and still make a difference to families.
Please help #savetailored
We are one of many families in Edinburgh who need support with teaching life skills to our non-verbal autistic daughter so that she can be as independent as possible and communicate her needs.
Tailor Ed taught our daughter to communicate and request food. Before this she could not communicate any needs at all, and was unhappy a lot of the time. Now she is an extremely contented child and her behaviour is more manageable. She has been taught more positive ways to express herself than just crying and this has benefited us all. Tailor Ed are also working with us intensively on her sleep issues to prevent us from reaching breaking point - she is awake for several hours a night, every night and it is difficult for us as working parents. Tailor Ed have helped us with dressing skills, to make our daughter more independent and make life physically easier for us.
Tailor Ed have helped us with our daughter's behaviour when out in community to make trips out easier as a family. Iain goes to a dad's night for Tailor Ed’s dads and it is his chance to relax with people who understand.
Please help save Tailor Ed.
