The Literacy Care Foundation is in the process of being established as a charity organisation.
Its purpose is to raise funds to assist families with the financial cost of services for their children who experience difficulties in literacy due to learning disabilities.
The Foundation is a separate entity to Literacy Care and the committee members are volunteers and are in no way obligated to Literacy Care. Their sole function is to consider each application on its individual merits and to award financial assistance accordingly.
The amount of financial assistance awarded will be decided as a percentage of the total fee necessary to access the support service/s being applied for and converted to a commensurate dollar amount. Funds will be paid directly to the service provider/s. Any outstanding payment after the financial assistance has been awarded is paid by the applicant.
If financial assistance is awarded it will usually be between 10% and 75% of the total fee for services required.
How Does it Work?
