REACH outfor bigcash boost
A project that helps support children with autism in Rutherglen and Cambuslang has been handed a cash boost.
REACH Lanarkshire Autism has received £2,000 from the STV Children’s Appeal.
The group supports children and young people affected by autism, and their siblings, by offering a range of activities including music therapy, swimming lessons, sports and teen groups.
The organisation also provides an extensive support network, enabling families to access a wealth of information and support from other parents.
Kim Jones, chair of REACH Lanarkshire Autism, said: “REACH is extremely grateful for the grant of £2,000 from the STV Children’s Appeal.
“The grant will go a long way in helping us to provide new classes for families who may be struggling to attend our current activities due to low income and the complex needs of their children.
“It will enable us to provide these classes at a muchreduced cost to families without jeopardising the level of support for the children.”
