British Dyslexia Association Helpline Appeal

by philw in Bracknell

We did it
On 24th July 2015 we successfully raised £1,126 with 46 supporters in 42 days

We are in urgent need of funding to enable us respond to a huge increase in demand so that we can answer more calls and help more people

Just a short word from our family to say you can count on our support. We too are one of those families that are fighting the system for funding for our one child who is severely Dyslexic. It really is a difficult period. You are a godsend and may you be blessed and cherished. No reward needed please also when we are able to pledge more we will do so. Kindest regards,

I know first hand how important these calls are from those that call us at The Alison Lawson Centre Many times we provide free advice much in the same way as your helpline and often we will provide your details as well. The world of dyslexia can be a confusing and lonely one, particularly if you don't know help is available.

Well done B.D.A. I wish I had known about you and had your support when my son was at school and struggling! Keep up the fantastic work.

The British Dyslexia Association supports many people with dyslexia. Many years ago I contacted the BDA's national helpline to ask for some advice and support to run an awareness campaign in my school. The information they gave me allow me to explain to my friends another student in school what is dyslexia and how it affects me. Support the BDA's appeal "Every Call Matters"
