How your support can make a difference
£5 could support autistic children and young people in our schools and college. For example, it could buy a pack of seeds and gardening equipment for our ‘seed to sell’ programme, helping young people develop their entrepreneurial spirit.
£20 could pay for a family support worker. This will ensure we provide telephone support to a family in crisis on matters such as welfare, health, and legal support.
£100 could provide five autistic young people with one to one careers information and guidance. With few autistic people in any kind of employment, providing this support is vital.
£1,250 could buy the resources for our Forest School including rubber mallets, tent pegs, tarpaulin, hammocks, bug kids, waterproofs, and wellies. This will ensure our primary aged pupils can experience the great outdoors, including a ‘story circle,’ sensory map (with twigs, leaves, mud), den-making, stick counting, bug safaris and opportunities for outdoor cooking.
£3,500 could support an autistic job seeker to access an internship, including training and recruitment support for the small business supporting them.
£10,000 could help us create tailored resources and toolkits, co-developed with autistic young people, that give employers guidance on making adaptations to their recruitment practice.
