Thank you to Ørsted’s East Coast Community Fund

“We have made wonderful use of this generous grant from Grantscape, providing sensory and soft play at Farmer Fred’s and swimming sessions at the Oasis pool. Our members love these two venues where they can run, relax and float in peace. So extremely important for autistic people, where they can be together with their families in a relaxed and supported environment. Thank you so much

Chair of Trustees for WNAG Karan McKerrow
