Autism Independence received a Bristol City Funds BCH Health & Wellbeing grant of £39,700. Funding will go towards employing a care coordinator to deliver monthly tailored one-to-one support, including education, social and health care support to people caring for a family member with Autism, who have been hit hard by the pandemic.
“Not knowing where to go for help or what autism is, as a parent of a child with autism is hard. Often these kids miss early intervention because of the language, system and cultural barriers their parents face. This award helps us bridge the gap between disadvantaged families living with autism and service provides that lack cultural barriers.
This award helps us to achieve our objectives to ensure that there is equal access and inclusive services for every child and their families.”
Founder of Autism Independence, Nura Aabe.
