URGENT APPEAL

Please share this far and wide we need as much exposure as possible- if anyone has contacts at the BBC / Local Papers / ITV who would take on this story please contact me directly....

This has taken a lot for me to post this so please spare any judgement or negative comments - we are in a desperate situation.

I want to share Courtney’s story - 20 yrs ago Courtney was put in a near death experience due to her biological father, this is the man I trusted and loved and also stood by when he said he had not done anything. Due to his actions he received a custodial sentence which will never even begin to cover what he did to his daughter- she is now confined to a wheelchair with a multitude of health issues which will continually worsen over time.
I have had to work extremely hard to rebuild my children's lives and throughout the years Courtney has had an amazing life meeting many people along the way and visiting many places .
Recently I have had to finish work and sold all my assets including my ponies to provide and care for Courtney.

Courtney was awarded a trust fund as some sort of compensation to secure her future in later life and be there to provide such things as suitable accommodation adapted to suit her complicated needs.
This is where the issue lies - we have been battling for over 3 years to have access to this fund with no joy. We have had barristers, MPs and councillors fighting the case however to no avail.

The situation has hit crisis point now - I have had to give up work, my horses and have sold most of my assets to provide for us as Courtney isn’t entitled to any help due to having this money in the trust fund.
The privately rented house that we live in has been sold resulting in us being homeless in less than 2 weeks from now.
The volume of stress and anxiety for fighting Courtney case has lead to me have medical treatment , counciling and my own health has deteriorated which is not good as I am courtneys full time carer

4 government bodies are aware of our situation but nobody is listening! I am Courtney’s sole carer and to have her put into care is detrimental to her well-being and mental health- she is my absolute world.

The crazy thing is Courtney might not be able to have access to what is rightfully hers but she is paying the wages of several people who are supposed to look after her money and her future.
We now need to raise money to try and get a bungalow  for Courtney which is adapted and safe , then once we are safe we can then start to take legal action to take the Government body's  to get justice for Courtney
