A programme in North Down to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This includes a Huddle Club – an after school drop-in for children with ASD and their siblings. The project will expand their support across North Down and Ards to help young people with behavioural problems, social or communication needs, and low confidence and self-esteem.
We are so excited about the prospect of being able to deliver these therapeutic group workshops to children with Autism or Social and Behavioural Difficulties.
If we are successful we will be running 12 Huddles the length and breadth of Ards and North Down at outreach centres, right down as far as Portaferry.
We will also be able to run Huddle Club, which will be a weekly afterschool drop in for these children from our premises in Bangor.
Our Huddle model has been tried and tested and the feedback from parents and clinical outcomes speak for themselves. Working with children from the perspective of building their resilience, confidence and self acceptance, by using art, music and creative therapies.
To make our dream and many parents in our areas dream a relaity, please get ready to vote tomorrow.
All you need to vote is an email address and a post code in the UK.
