    Hello @urddadfoundation

    Welcome to the community, how are you? 

    It sounds like you do some marvellous work, that certainly is a very important issue to campaign about.

    Hi @urddadfoundation - & welcome to the community. Parents who care so much for their children will be rightly concerned about their children's' future. This sounds like something much needed, so it's great you founded this charity.

    @urddadfoundation could I ask what your charity registration details are?
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Hello @urddadfoundation and welcome to Scope's online community.

    It's great to hear you started your charity but sad to hear about your concerns :(  Our informal carers are too often taken for granted with little state support, be it practical or financial.

    In-fact, you might find this recent post about one dad's care for his daughter relatable.

    How is the charity getting on?  Have you managed to garner much support/attention?  

    All the best for the future and it will be nice to speak to you again.  Take care.
