Celebrate Autism Awareness Month

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Social Inclusion

We are proud to fund organisations that provide support to individuals and families living with autism. This Autism Awareness Month, we shine a light on the work of some of our small grant recipients and encourage our friends and supporters to seek opportunities to increase understanding and acceptance of people living with autism.

Coco and POne of these charities is Dogs for Autism. The charity provide specially trained dogs to those living with autism, free of charge. The assistance dogs help individuals by empowering them to realise their individual potential, improve their access to their chosen communities, and enhance their emotional and physical wellbeing.

GUBA Founbdation

The PWCF small grants programme has also supported the GUBA Foundation. The charity delivers culturally sensitive training and celebrates the achievements of people with autism in the UK and Ghana to ensure that autism is not a stigma.

PWCF funding helped Autism NI (Northern Ireland’s longest established autism charity) to deliver ‘effective communication’ courses to 80 parents and carers of children with autism. The course brings families together to share experiences, reduce isolation, and empower them to support their child through learning new skills.
