Autism charity is delighted to receive computer donation
A CHARITY for people with autism is celebrating a donation of computer equipment from a firm.
Space4Autism offers respite, advice, support and guidance to people with autism and their families in Macclesfield and the surrounding area.
The charity, which is based on Lowe Street, Macclesfield, runs support groups for families and activities for young people.
The team and its members are celebrating receiving a donation of fully refurbished PCs from Prism Solutions, a company based in Congleton.
Cheryl Simpson, charity operations manager at Space4Autism who helped set up the charity, said: “We run social skills clubs for more than 80 children and young people with autism from the ages of five to 18 years who want to use technology and begin to acquire skills for the world of work.
“We are incredibly grateful for Prism’s support in this.
“This donation will benefit our members and therefore the community we proudly represent.”
The donation is part of Prism’s scheme to help organisations adopt technology. To date, 80 machines have been donated to charities since the launch 18 months ago.
Prism’s co-founder, Gary David Smith said he is delighted to be able to help Space4Autism.
He said: “We want to help charities use technology to better connect with their members, volunteers and potential funders.
“We are thrilled that Space4Autism took advantage of our scheme.
“Finance is not the only barrier facing third sector organisations with many reporting to us that they need assistance with training and ongoing support.”
