Despite being a national resource, we receive no central government funding. Local authorities pay fees which cover the basic cost of care and education. However, these do not allow for any capital development, the up-keep of our buildings, extension of therapeutic care, or any of the extra curricular activities which other children take for granted and which our children so desperately need.
