As part of our ongoing commitment to support local charities, this quarter we have chosen a very worthy cause to make a donation to – The Pendragon Multi-Sensory Centre in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.
Kay, a member of the Simpson Associates team, has a 3 year old son who has recently been diagnosed with Autism. In a bid to seek out suitable support and resources, Kay discovered the amazing place that is The Pendragon Multi-Sensory Centre. The centre includes a large studio based specialist multi-sensory environment for groups of up to 14 in number and a smaller environment for more personalised use by up to 2 clients. The centre provides support to the lives of those with:
- Physical difficulties
- Emotional difficulties
- Mental health issues
- Learning difficulties and their families and carers.
The specialist Multi–Centre provides a range of sensory equipment and sensory experiences including:
- Therapeutic, respite and relaxation
- Developmental opportunities and support to visitors.
- Reduce isolation and encourage networking
- The extensive use of sound and light using the latest technology.
There is also a café area where clients and their families and carers can meet and relax.
With World Autism Awareness week taking place between 30th March to 5th April its great to be supporting a charity that do so much to help children and adults with Autism.
