    Story

    Thank you for visiting our page to assist in generating funds to meet the costs of an "Autism Assistance Dog" for six year old Riley Fenwick, which will greatly enhance both his, and our family's quality of life.

    Riley's autism was recognised from an early age, and over the last four years this has impacted greatly on our lives. Autism affects individuals in different ways and one person on the “autistic spectrum” will have needs, anxieties and reactions which vary from others. Some examples of our own include Riley failing to see the dangers which the likes of roads, water, suffocation and pushing / lashing out can present – which not only puts him at risk of injury (or worse), but also his younger brother Frankie (3) who often follows the example of his older brother being at a young, impressionable age – to the extent his mother (Amy) now lacks confidence to take the children out of the house on her own. Riley's father (Carl) works long hours six (and if necessary, seven) days a week running his own business.

    An "Autism Assistance Dog" will offer a great benefit in providing help and reassurance for Riley, and more importantly allow for a sense of security for him and his fellow family members when outside of the home environment. Riley has just attended an introduction day, and he immediately found the interaction beneficial between himself and the dog. For further details and explanation of Autism Assistance Dogs, the following site is particularly informative: www.guidedogs.org.au/autism-assistance-dogs

    The cost of an Assistance Dog is approximately £20,000 - and the family will need to meet approximately fifty percent of these costs. This page is just one of a number of channels in which we will be attempting to fundraise.

    Any donation made here, however insignificant you may think it seems will be very gratefully received. In turn you will be helping not just Riley, but also Frankie, Amy and Carl lead a much less stressful and happier family life.
