April is World Autism Awareness Month (WAAM) and we here at The Gate could not be more proud to support such an amazing cause. It is estimated that approximately one in 100 children have autism in the UK, that’s around 100,000 children.
With autism comes many challenges for both children and parents alike. As well as academic constraints, children with autism also face the risk of exclusion and equally as bad, bullying. That’s where WAAM comes in, WAAM represents an excellent opportunity to promote autism awareness, autism acceptance and to draw attention to the tens of thousands facing an autism diagnosis each year.
We here at The Gate truly believe everyone has a pivotal role to play in society, and that includes those with autism. That’s why The Gate is proud to work closely with local registered charity for autism, Ambitious about Autism in supporting local primary schools as well as various other projects (Learn More). What’s more we’re also striving to become an autism friendly registered restaurant to push the acceptance of autism in our society.
For the Month of April The Gate is proud to support WAAM and will be adding a voluntary £1 to our customers’ bills to be donated to Ambitious about Autism.
As well as this the lovely Loni who looks after all our CSR Interests is running her very first London Marathon later this month, raising money for Ambitious about Autism. If you’d like to support her please donate here. #GoodLuckLoni
