On the second day of Christmas your giving could help people like Martin learn new skills.


Many of our adults accessing care and day services would struggle to fit into standard programmes and timteables which is why we continually strive to pioneer and innovate creative ways to help develop life skills and foster independence.


Martin is just one of our adults from New Warlands Farm – our bespoke training centre set in the rolling hills of County Durham. As part of his day he now helps gather the eggs from our new chicken coop ready to sell to staff members across the Society.

Martin’s worker Steph explained:

On the face of it may seem like a lesson in agriculture but Martin is also learning numeracy, money handling, social skills and it’s developing his independence. One of the loveliest things to come from this, from my point of view, is watching him learn to take turns and make friends.


Without creative projects like this some of our children, young people and adults may get lost in a rigid system of education and training but thanks to your generosity we can keep dreaming, planning and creating new ways for autistic people to reach their potential and have a great time in the process!

Make sure to come back for day three of our Christmas campaign!
