The Family fund help families across the UK whom are raising a disabled or seriously ill child or young person aged 17 or under. They provide grants for a wide range of items, such as washing machines, sensory toys, family breaks, etc. Family Fund recognise it can be a struggle financially, emotionally and physically for families raising a disabled or seriously ill child, and these grants help break down many of the barriers families face, improving their quality of life and easing the additional daily pressures.
Understanding Autism North West is a registered charity providing a specialised therapeutic service for autistic individuals and families. We believe the autistic community should feel safe and understood in their therapeutic experience at UANW and we therefore demand professionalism and extensive knowledge and experience of autism from all therapists.
