As a small, not-for-profit organisation, we rely on the goodwill and generosity of businesses, charities and individuals in our community to enable us to organise and run our monthly Saturday Club and our Summer Play Scheme and Activity Week.


We also seek support to develop our sensory therapy provision as part of our Lifeskills Learning Centre.

This charitable organisation generously sent us a £500 donation towards the cost of sensory equipment for our Sensory Den Project.

Leicestershire County Council's YOUR SHIRE Community Grant has awarded us £2,500 towards the costs of our Summer Play Scheme and Activity Week in 2016.

We are already seeing the benefits of the therapy swing for the young people who access our Wednesday after school club and our Learning Centre; and LCC's generosity is very much appreciated.

Cycling for Autism

Come and join the fun!

Saturday 4th February 2017 - 3pm - 7pm at our Learning Centre (Town Hall Chambers, Town Hall Passage, Market Place, Loughborough).

Over 3 hours we aim to cycle from Loughborough to Whitby (150 miles) with a team of 5 staff and 5 young people with autism taking turns on the bikes.

Each participant will be seeking sponsorship from friends and family prior to the event.

During the day we shall be holding an auction and raffle of a whole range of amazing prizes generously donated to us by local organisations.

This event is being project managed by a 15 year old young man whom we have supported over the past year; and is to help raise valuable funds to support the young people who access our learning centre for After School and Holiday Clubs, and a range of other activities.


Fit 4 Less in Loughborough are kindly lending us 5 spin bikes for our event.  

If you would like to make a donation now to support our event, please click on the link below to our localgiving page, and follow the instructions given there.

Thank you all for your support!
