Mel Scott Funeral Fund

$6,210 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 94 people in 3 months
Created October 5, 2018
On Sunday 30th September 2018, a beautiful mother, the most thoughtful friend and one of the strongest advocates in the Autism  Community, Mel Scott, was sadly called home to be at peace.

Mel's story has touched and shocked the community, not only for her loved ones but for complete strangers, as her passing is a tragedy, it should never have happened and that if anyone was subjected to what she was put through, this could have been any one of us.

Mel was brave, courageous and always put other people’s needs before her own. Mel always went out of her way to make people feel cherished and loved and was a great support for many other Autism families.

In honour of Mel’s memory, we are fundraising money to give her the send off she deserves, with the money going immediately to the funeral and memorial costs (preparations have commenced) and supporting her world and who she loved and cherished, her beautiful daughter and support dog Frankie, for their future.

Mel was always supporting others, and it was her final wishes, that in her passing, she can help other children with disabilities and their families, by donating some of the money raised to The Board Meeting Surf Charity, who supported Mel and her daughter throughout the years, from setting up a safe space therapy room in her house to helping to fund therapy.  

To say we are heartbroken, is an understatement and we hope that in her passing we can show her just how much she was loved and help prevent this from happening again.

Thank you Bec, Kaye and Nadine

Sadly, false accusations have been made, in regards, to raising money for Mel’s funeral, a memorial for her and in supporting Jade’s and Frankie’s future. The money being raised is 100% going towards Mel’s funeral costs, for a memorial for Mel, if we can get council approval, and for Jade and Frankie. Whatever is not used for funeral cost, this money is 100% going exactly where it has been stated and evidence has been provided to confirm this.

This fund has been organised by the three executors of Mel’s estate Nadine Hoffman, Rebecca Tardent and Kaye Morgan. Nadine Hoffman, is responsible for the payment of Mel’s funeral if Mel’s estate can not cover the costs. Any false accusations made against the purpose of this fund, privately or publicly, will be taken very seriously.

There is currently no other money available to pay for the funeral and if any does come through then we are able to make sure any extra goes into a trust for Mel’s daughter and can be used for a memorial for Mel.

It is really disappointing that we are having to deal with this as we have all given up the last 2 and half weeks of our lives to carry out Mel’s final wishes, looking after Mel’s funeral, her belongings, vacating her rental property, finalising her estate etc. while also trying to be respectful, grieve the loss of our beautiful friend and continue with our own lives. :(
