Charities to recognise Neurodiversity Celebration Week with free event at Rogue Leisure

0

The charities Absolutely Together and Autism Bucks have joined forces to recognise Neurodiversity Celebration Week and will be hosting an event at Rogue Leisure in Aylesbury on Tuesday 22nd March.

Taking place between Monday 21st March and Sunday 27th March, Neurodiversity Celebration Week aims to empower children and young adults who have learning differences to achieve their full potential.

Absolutely Together, which provides leisure activity vouchers for children and young people who have additional needs, is providing free bowling and free use of the twin-seat go kart at Rogue Leisure for the day. The kart enables drivers to have as much or as little control, as they wish as they are joined by an expert instructor.

Schools that cater for children who have special educational needs are invited to use the facilities at Rogue Leisure for free between 10am and 3pm on Tuesday 22nd March, and families who have children with disabilities between 4pm and 9pm.

Autism Bucks, which aims to ensure the voices of those with autism in the local community are heard, will be available through the day for schools and families to talk to. The charity has developed a range of accessible awareness and training resources, including the YouTube series Autism Bucks Awareness Project, which was created and delivered by those with autism, their parents and carers.

Mat Read, Venue Manager at Rogue Leisure, commented:

“We’re always keen to support local charities and community groups by giving the venue to them to raise awareness, and we’re delighted to welcome Absolutely Together and Autism Bucks for their event. They each support some of the most vulnerable and socially isolated people in our local community and we look forward to welcoming children and young people who have learning differences to try something new, display their skills and have fun.”

Schools and families who would like to attend the event can register their interest and book a free session by emailing smiles@absolutely-group.co.uk.
