We are hoping to run a Swimming and multi sports programme to help 30 children with Autism/ADHD gain life skills and experience a range of sports.

This project was funded on 19 Jul 2019!

We will be bringing a group of children with Autism/ADHD together alongside Neurotypical children to enjoy a programme of Swimming and Multi sports. Our children find it hard socialising and this will hopefully help them gain confidence and meet new friends. The children will be taught lifelong skills, while building friendships, empowering them with knowledge and gaining communication skills which will enable them alongside the Neurotypical to build a better community relationship. We want our children to be accepted and teach others that it's ok to be different.

What we'll deliver:

  • Health and fitness
  • Friendships
  • Community spirit

Why it's a great idea:

Children with Autism/ADHD are often socially isolated. They lack confidence, have problems communicatibg. They struggle with emotions and often have less ability to show empathy.. This programme will bring the children together teaching them both social skills. Letting the Neurotypical child see that the Asd children are the same as them, they may just not have the same likes and dislikes. The Asd children are often obsessed with things for example trains. They will have great knowledge and will know All different makes an models. We want to show the children that it's ok to have different hobbies. We want to teach them patience, gain confidence, learn to turn take, but most of all to be happy and feel accepted

Steps to get it done:

  • On our last day we are holding a fun day for the 30 children. They will be invited where there will be sports for all
