Fundraising and donating

Why support Autism Early Support

By supporting us you can help change the lives of children with autism and other communication difficulties.

Every penny counts and makes a vital contribution towards our provision of specialist education, therapy and support. We work with children aged between 2 and 12 years of age; all of whom find it difficult to communicate, interact with others, manage their emotions and engage with the world around them.

Together, we can help them to develop vital communication, social and emotional skills in their early years, which can transform their futures. We can provide parents with information and guidance, as well as practical and emotional support. We can also provide training opportunities for professionals to help build their knowledge and skills in the provision of specialist support for children with autism.

As a charity, we need to raise over £320,000 each year through grants, donations and fundraising activities. We are very grateful for the generous support of many charitable Trusts, companies, community groups, sports clubs, schools and individuals, which makes such a difference to what we can achieve for children with autism and, consequently, what they can achieve for themselves. If you are able to please consider making a Regular Giving  to the charity.

Should you wish to make a donation by cheque, please ensure the cheque is made out to Autism Early Support Trust Limited.

£5 a month would generate a revenue of £60 per annum (£75 with gift aid).

£10 a month would generate a revenue of £120  per annum ( £150 with gift aid) this would provide one nursery session for a child.

£25 would provide individual learning support assistance for one child during a nursery session.

£50 would cover the cost of one session of a special group Circle Time for 6 children.
