    Story

    Richie and his awesome friend Lorraine are aiming to raise £1000

    Running the Great North run for Awesometistic CIC to help improve home life for children and parents. Learning to embrace that "its Ok to me be"

    Awesometistic are an organisation that exists to create greater public awareness of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Support is provided to young people (aged 4-25) who suffer with ASD through: awareness workshops; provision of educational tools; a peer support programme; and sharing stories. Further support is also provided to family, education and clinical networks to encourage receptibility and improve the support networks available to those who have been diagnosed with ASD or who present symptoms of the condition. Our organisation has been delivering services for around six months but was only formally incorporated as a CIC in October 2018. In this short amount of time, Awesometistic has delivered 47 talks and provided support to over 990 kids which has sparked a growing interest in Awesometisitc’s programme of support.

    To help meet this need Awesometistic want to deliver a programme of activity including our 6-week workshop programme called,

    'It’s Ok to Be Me'

    This is aimed at children and young people aged 4-25yrs with autism and mental health and establish a young peer support network. This activity will help us engage young people with autism in the delivery of the workshop programme and build the capacity of our company through young volunteers. We want to help reduce social isolation and help to combat individual anxiety and mental health, we want our beneficiaries to be able to use our programme as a way to help make lasting relationships with others in their community and so will help them with support in their day to day life. We also intend to purchase different items of sensory equipment to create the right environment for our target group. Our activity will help children young people with autism by giving them a voice.
