My daughter’s special needs youth club will close

Got the call today to say my daughter’s special needs youth club has lost its funding and will close after easter.

it sounds like nothing major, but at 13 it’s the only shred of independence she has and it is very important to her. it took her a while to settle (she has fragile x syndrome, a learning difficulty similar to autism) but she has made friends there and it means the world to her.

i had to tell her when she came home from school and she was devestated.
closing it will make an insignificant impact on the countries finances, but the impact on my daughters life will be huge.
