HOME > AEC ARE DELIGHTED TO BE SUPPORTING BUDDY’S FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM
AEC are proud to give back to the community and each year our staff choose a charity in which to raise money for. The charity committee develop a programme of events and set a fundraising target which AEC match £1 for £1 at the end of the year.
For 2019, AEC are delighted to be raising money for Buddy’s Children with Autism.
Buddy’s are a local charity based in Bury, Manchester whose aim is to inspire hope and contribute to the health and wellbeing of children and adults with Autism; by providing the best support through friendship and education
Autism is a lifelong, developmental condition that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them.
Approximately 700,000 people in the UK experience Autism that is 1% of the population. Buddy's provides a full range of activities and support services that encompass the whole family such as a charity shop, sensory changing rooms, safe spaces, daily living skills and support groups.
In 2018, Buddy’s purchased a caravan in Lancashire to provide young people and their families much needed respite care. In order for the caravan to be fit for purpose and a place to be enjoyed, it needs to be installed with safety and disability access, customized sensory equipment, a sensory garden and disability aids.
AEC would like to raise £2,000 this year through a variety of fundraising events and activites such as:
