Action for Asperger's receives vital funding from our players




Our players have supported Action for Asperger's with funding towards a sensory therapy room to help people with Asperger's Syndrome Our players have supported Action for Asperger's with funding towards a sensory therapy room to help people with Asperger's Syndrome

Based in Northamptonshire, Action for Asperger's offers bespoke counselling, emotional support and a diagnostic and advocacy service for people who are affected by Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism. This fantastic charity has been operating since 2008, easing the lives of those who are in distress or upset as a consequence of their experience with Asperger's Syndrome.



Action for Asperger's recently received £5,000 from People's Postcode Trust, a grant-giving organisation funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery. Funding from our players has enabled the organisation to create a sensory therapy room which will use sight, touch and hearing senses to enhance the quality of life for people affected by autism. All services provided are entirely donation-lead and can be used by individuals who have autism or people who have a close relationship to those living with autism.



Elaine Nicholson, Chief Executive Officer at Action for Asperger's, said, "We cannot thank players of People’s Postcode Lottery enough. Enabling us to equip a room that has been turned into a sensory therapy room for lives affected by autism has afforded an enhanced counselling experience for those individuals who turn to us. This in turn leads to manifold positive outcomes such as decreased risk of suicide, self-harming behaviours, alleviated depression and anxiety, and much, much, more. Sensory therapy equipment is costly and, thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery, we were able to set up our sensory room in no time. We are eternally grateful."
