Funding for treatment

Hi I'm 22 with Cerebral Palsy (spastic diplega). When I was 18 I was dumped by the health care system and have had no help since. I have really struggled on my own without any support.

I went to my GP recently for advice and he didn't seem bother at all and was pretty useless. I live in Cornwall and no one seems to specialise in adults with CP or know how to help me.

I had heard of a centre for people with MS locally and thankfully they have experience with CP. They are really lovely and I have hope for the first time that I can revive help. Unfortunately it comes at a significant price. 

Does anyone know where I could maybe find funding for treatment? Is there anyone I could contact who might know?

Thanks
