Rt Hon William Hague MP visited Wirral Autistic Society’s Raby Hall site in Bromborough to view a £950,000 new build of autism-specific accommodation set to open in Spring 2015.
He said, “I’m very impressed with the work of the society and in how it has built up over the years into such a vital service.”
Also attending was John Bell, parliamentary candidate for Wirral South. He said, “I was delighted to have this chance to showcase the terrific work being done by the society in our region.”
The visit also included a tour of The Ferns, also on the Raby site, the UK’s only autism-specific respite care unit for adults, where he had the opportunity to experience a sensory room designed to stimulate – or calm – people with autism.
