Autism Inclusive 23 Nov 2017
Autism Inclusive provide supportive services and events for individuals on the autistic spectrum. Currently all their trustees are on the autism spectrum and this can make certain essential aspects of running their organisation very difficult - particularly in the areas of promotion and marketing and project development, where there is normally a necessity to meet individuals on a face-to-face basis or speak to them over the telephone. This kind of contact is often very problematic for individuals on the autism spectrum and this barrier is currently detrimental to their ability to develop and grow as an organisation and continue to offer key services to those who need them. The Comic Relief Core Strengths grant will employ a part time Development Coordinator 8.5 hours per week for a period of 48 weeks to help strengthen the core operational activities of the organisation, necessary to help the organisation remain sustainable and grow in the future.
