Our holiday home is fully funded!
What a positive and well-deserved end to 2020!
We are delighted to announce that the generosity of individuals, companies and charitable foundations means that we will be able to buy our mobile holiday home at Hardwicks Park, near Witney in Oxfordshire in January. We have a few things to do once we have bought it, including getting a path and parking space installed, as well as decking all around the home. So long as Covid restrictions are lifted, we plan to welcome our first holiday makers in the spring.
Many autistic adults do not have sufficient personal budget to afford a holiday, especially when the cost of funding their support whilst away is considered. This means that many people miss out. Our home will enable people we support to have an affordable holiday or short break. The home will also be available for families and our hardworking staff.
