Merseyside charity Autism Together will be hosting its first ever Friendship Café at Bromborough Pool Garden Centre on Monday 16th October to raise the issue of how important it is to have positive and healthy friendships.
Autism Together is asking families affected by autism for their help with a special research project. Those completing a simple online questionnaire (www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XB6NFT5) will have their names entered into a hat. One family will win an overnight stay at the luxurious Malmaison hotel on Liverpool's famous waterfront.
"I am so proud to be part of this. If I have had a really bad day, or a really difficult meeting, or I come into training and I feel really down, the minute I get on the horse, I’m on cloud nine. It has that effect on you."
Our Autism Training and Advisory Service are pleased to announce that limited availability tickets are now on sale for our 2017 Conference, 3rd November 2017. Places are limited due to high demand from our staff with twenty places for the morning session and twenty for the afternoon session at a cost of £25pp.
The group are taking on the challenge to raise money for Autism Together, a Wirral-based charity which provides support to people with autism through a wide range of living options, day services and community support. They hope to raise £500 from the event, and are well on their way to making this target.
...this has been a learning curve. The most surprising thing is the help I've had from family and friends. People have really got behind me. They'll do anything they can to help people with autism."
