For My Disabled 17 Year Olds Sanctuary

Hi and welcome to my go fund me page. I am a mum to four children. Two girls age 17 and 14 and two boys age 13 and 6. My eldest daughter and youngest son are both disabled. They both have high fuctioning autism and dyspraxia. I have done alot of research and asked for alot of help from local councils ect for a grant to build my eldest daughter her own space in the loft/attic or a conseratory as she will be living with me for a very long time and can no longer go on sharing her room with her 14 year old sister due to sensory issues however they dont see this important enough to fund. They cant see the upset and stress my daughter has everyday just because she needs to be in her own space to relax in and do collage work ect without disruption. I have a 3 bedroomed home so my children have to share bedrooms. my daughter has no where at home to relax and have space to herself when things get to much for her or if she needs to do coursework ect. we have looked at the cheapest most basic safe thing to have built and that is a safe haven in our attic or a conservatory built where she can spend time in the day to relax and study. Grants can be given for people who are disabled but only for things like stair lifts or wet rooms so our application got turned down and i have to find the funds myself. I have found myself a builder but didnt expect the quote to be this amount as we were going to try and save up but As im a full time carer to my daughter and on carers allowence this is something i cant completly fund myself hence setting up this page. The quote i have been given is £7500 for the attic and pretty much the same if we had a conservatory as it has to be done professional and safely. We are very settled where we live in the countryside and the last thing i want to do is uproot my children and cause my daughter stress and move home so im hoping for the publics help. All evidence of the work and quote ect can and will be provided. If anyone can spare anything, even just £1 it will really help to make my daughters life alot better to live. Thank you for your time reading this ❤
