This week, MP; Dr Kieran Mullan had the opportunity to look round the new Autism Inclusive centre on the old MMU campus in Crewe. Formed in 2014, Autism Inclusive offers support for those with autism, ADHD and other neuro-diversities (diagnosed or suspected) and their families. Previously based at Brierley Street they moved to the new expanded site in August 2020 but were not operating long before lock down forced services to close.
“I was shown round by Co-Chairs Gemma Moloney-Ridsdale & Elly Holstead and got to see the new expanded facilities including a gaming room, sensory room, charity shop. library and quiet room. The charity has now been able to resume some services like weekly support groups, children's activities and gaming sessions. They reopened their doors March 8th.”
“It is amazing to see how the charity has expanded what it can offer children and families. They are definitely making the most of their new site. The plans for the outdoor area are also really exciting, so I look forward to seeing that come to fruition”.
Co-Chair Elly Holstead said
“It was great to show Kieran round and we really want to raise awareness of the services we offer for people. We want this centre to help provide support and enjoyment for as many people as possible. I would encourage anyone who thinks this might be a place for them or their children to come to get in touch, give us a try.”
