Our priority is the health and wellbeing of the autism community

In times of crisis those who are most at risk of falling through the cracks and being left behind are the most vulnerable members of society.

During this stressful and unpredictable time a key focus is to stand by the families we support and continue to provide an autism-specific education to over 1,100 students either at school or online at home.

We are currently being overwhelmed by the number of families facing extreme hardship, through no fault of their own, and have been and will continue to provide immediate financial relief and intensive support.

Our response to Coronavirus

To respond we’ve set up a Coronavirus Crisis Fund so we can reach and respond to the overwhelming needs of more families, as they are unfolding. To date these include:

  • Immediate financial support to hundreds of families facing job loss.
  • Buying iPads with 4G connectivity and smash proof screens for vulnerable students without access to the internet at home so they can attend school online.
  • Delivering tailored learning packs and sensory toys to support our young vulnerable learners who can't return to school.
  • Support to set up daily structure and maintain a new autism-specific routine amid rapidly changing government restrictions.
  • Assisting families with behaviour support at home. Changes in behaviour are often the way people on the autism spectrum communicate their feelings in times of extreme stress.

Please help us keep families as stable as possible to ensure no-one is left behind. Your donation today will go to where it's needed most.
