Pears Foundation has been a phenomenal supporter, donating over £1.2 million since 2005. They have been hugely generous: offering major investment in our building, whilst also funding our policy work and the Centre for Research in Autism and Education (CRAE), founded in partnership with the Institute of Education. We are also very grateful to Pears Foundation for funding our Ambitious about Autism Annual Lecture.
In recognition of the Foundation’s unique support and partnership, we are honoured to have named our building The Pears National Centre for Autism Education.
Their interest and dedication has allowed us to build a strong partnership: seeking to build capacity across the sector and encourage collaboration. We are so grateful to Pears Foundation for their overwhelming commitment; we could not have achieved the reach and impact we have without their support, guidance and involvement.
