Play is fundamental to development.
Why we need your help
Please help us to create a exciting new interactive playground for children with autism and neurodisabilities.
Currently, there is no permanent playground equipment which limits how the children can occupy their time outdoors. We need your help to create a vibrant, and joyful playground that can be enjoyed for years to come.
Your donation, no matter the size, will enable the children to:
- Enjoy time outdoors- As evidenced by worldwide research, outdoor play has a significant impact on children’s health, wellbeing and development due in part to its restorative and stress-reducing effects.
- Improve communication and develop friendships – Children with autism can find building and sustaining friendships difficult. An outdoor play area with different equipment will help to encourage the development of peer relationships as children learn to share the equipment and play together.
- Help develop physical and imaginative skills – The play area will become a key teaching aid for our Occupational Therapy team to assist learners in developing gross and fine motor skills outside of the classroom.
Like many charities have faced prolonged reductions in our ability to carry out fundraising activities, we need your help to make this project happen. Please get involved if you can.
All donations will directly benefit children with autism.
