Elsie Normington Foundation plans to build a specialist play centre, respite wing, community coffee shop and some supported housing for children and young adults with learning disabilities in Inverness.
We need your help to raise £4 million for this project. You can donate by visiting www.gofundme.com/the-haven-appeal
Young people need relevant facilities and services while parents need to be supported appropriately in their caring role. There are 1679 children with additional needs in school and 722 children who are registered disabled in Highland.
Elsie Normington was inspired to start her Foundation and launch the Haven Appeal as her adult son, Andrew, has a learning disability.
