How can you help?

Many kind people have offered to help Sara Jane Harvey (aka Agony Autie) crowdfund a wheelchair. She is waiting for a power chair from the NHS, as are many other people.
The issue is that Sara is not the only person this is happening to. While it is horrific that this keeps occurring, despite Northern’s assurances that it won’t happen again, Sara’s live feeds and vlogs are highlighting an issue that happens to disabled people every day.
This happens all the time to people without a public voice and many are housebound because they fear just this outcome if they try and travel.
These people won’t be able to get a wheelchair via crowdfunding and aren’t in a position to have their voices heard.
Sara is an advocate for autistic rights and she feels passionately about helping everyone have an equal shot at living in our society. While she desperately wants to accept money to buy a wheelchair, I don’t think she could live with herself knowing that thousands of others are going without.
