At the end of 2021 we heard the fantastic news about the results of the Wirral Globe‘s recent voucher funding scheme.

Thanks to our supporters across the North West, Autism Together managed to secure the largest share of the funding available… over £5,000!

We’re so grateful to everyone who nominated us for a share of the money, and all those who collected and returned the vouchers from the Wirral Globe and its sister newspapers.

Autism Together was in the running, along with 7 other regional charities, to get a share of £20,000 from the parent company that produces the Globe and a number of other North West newspapers.

How much we stood to receive depended on how many vouchers were cut out and returned, with a box ticked for Autism Together.

Staff managed to fill all three of the collection boxes in Oak House, and it seems that the local community did a fantastic job collecting and posting in other boxes – which were located in supermarkets and newsagents across Wirral.

The money will go towards funding the in-demand Autism Advice Sessions that our award-winning Autism Training and Advisory Service delivers.

These sessions provide support, reassurance and strategies to help autistic individuals and their loved ones – covering a wide range of topics such as employment, parenting, communication, coping strategies and anxiety reduction.
