Using our Community Support Grant to provide activities for autistic people
We have donated £460 from our Community Support Grant to a peer service group for autistic people.
We have awarded this money to Cloverleaf Advocacy which delivers peer and self-advocacy services for autistic people and those who are still waiting for a diagnosis.
The donation will be used to fund various activities, equipment and trips around Lancashire.
Daniel Hall, Service Manager for Cloverleaf Advocacy, said: “We are really grateful that our Lancashire Autism Peer and Self Advocacy Service (LAPSS) has been granted £460 from Progress Housing Group.
“Autistic people are no longer engaging with their communities the way they did before the pandemic, especially with the cost of living crisis. We want to help them take the next steps ‘back into the world’ in ways that are affordable for them.
“Funding from Progress Housing Group will help us do just this, resulting in reduced feelings of loneliness and anxiety.”
Diane Nash, Progress Involvement Manager, said: “We are thrilled to donate this money to a fantastic organisation which will have a positive impact on the community.
“We are happy to support more great causes and encourage other groups to apply for similar funding.”
