Autism Together’s chief executive, Robin Bush, is taking on the Lakeland 50 – an ultra 50-mile race across the Lake District, to raise money for the charity’s Future 50 Appeal.
The training encourages social inclusion by mixing non-disabled and disabled players aged 17 years or older, and provides a rugby playing opportunity for individuals who may otherwise not be able to get involved.
The film, ‘Future visions: voices of the autism community’, asks local people living with autism to think ahead to what they would like and hope to achieve in the next fifty years.
Charity Autism Together has launched a £2.5m appeal to fund a ‘game-changing’ high-tech project with the potential to transform the care of those with severe autism.
Christine McGuinness, wife of TV personality Paddy McGuinness, has lent her support to Autism Together’s Future 50 appeal.
I had begun working at Autism Together in 2013 and in the spring of 2014 my colleague Jane asked to attend a conference in Paris. On her return Jane told me about an academic from America who was demonstrating the use of biometric technology and was discussing a project that he had ongoing in a school in New York state.
At Autism Together we’re launching our biggest appeal yet on 22nd March. We’re keeping the details under wraps for now but keep your eyes peeled on our social media pages on that date!
