Weʼre raising £5,000 to Raise vital funds to help and support the Autism community
- Caerphilly, United Kingdom
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are on a mission to raise £5,000 to be split between two Amazing Charities - The Autism Directory and Side by Side.
Side by Side is a Choir based in Caerphilly which helps to provide support and raise awareness for Autism and the community.
Music can help people with autism to improve skills in areas such as communication, social skills, sensory issues, behaviour, cognition, perceptual/motor skills, and self-reliance or self-determination.
The choir is very much like a family, with Rikki the MD being driven not only to create an Autism friendly atmosphere and a great sound but to also raise much needed awareness for Autism by performing at Charity events. The choir is reliant on fundraising for it to continue.
The Autism Directory is a registered charity (no. 1143855) working to support individuals and families living with autism at a grass roots level in the community.
They offer Support for adults with autism to get into self employment, including a speaker agency for those that have a story to tell, as well as having online support tools. They have local community ambassadors and coordinators working at a local level with individuals, families and support groups to provide specific support for their needs (in specific areas with the aim of rolling out across the UK). This Charity is a vital Lifeline for some of the Autism community.
These two Amazing causes need vital funds in order for them to continue to help and support the local community and to spread awareness.
