The cost of travelling to and attending our events is a big issue for some people.
A family in Wales who receive support from their local integrated team for disabled children (social services) found a solution.
They asked their social worker if the council would be able to contribute towards the costs of the conference and the train travel. It took quite a while to hear back as the request had to be passed by a panel. Eventually, the council said that they would be happy to pay and sent a cheque.
Mother Caryl said “It’s excellent. It might be different elsewhere but I would just advise anyone to ask their social worker. If you don’t ask you don’t get!”
Aniridia Network is also willing to be flexible with the conference fees. Contact us to discuss things such as paying in instalments.
