Here at Your Ideas we got SAS!

In November we kicked off our Support Across the Spectrum project which is a development of our existing Spectrum Club sessions. We were successful in receiving funding for the next 5 years by the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund (whoohoo!!) The Spectrum Club for those who don’t already know is our work with youngsters who have Aspergers Syndrome.

So this meant the Spectrum Club went from fortnightly Thursday evening sessions for younger (Spectrum Orange) and older (Spectrum Red) members to weekly sessions for both groups and much much more…

The Support Across the Spectrum project has three main aims-

1) Reduce isolation of people with ASD

2) Increase independence of people with ASD

3) Increase mental and physical well being of people with ASD

This is taking the form of weekly friendship groups, weekly drop in, group trips, internal and external volunteering opportunities, film projects, festivals, steering group, review website, monthly social games console nights, healthy lifestyle and independent living skills activities and projects and much more!
