Why support Puzzle Centre
By supporting Puzzle Centre you can help change the lives of children with autism and other communication difficulties.
Every penny counts and makes a vital contribution towards our provision of specialist education, therapy and support. We work with children aged between 2 and 11 years of age; all of whom find it difficult to communicate, interact with others, manage their emotions and engage with the world around them.
Together, we can help them to develop vital communication, social and emotional skills in their early years, which can transform their futures. We can provide parents with information and guidance, as well as practical and emotional support. We can also provide training opportunities for professionals to help build their knowledge and skills in the provision of specialist support for children with autism.
As a charity, Puzzle Centre needs to raise at least £250,000 each year through grants, donations and fundraising activities. We are very grateful for the generous support of many charitable Trusts, companies, community groups, sports clubs, schools and individuals, which makes such a difference to what we can achieve for children with autism and, consequently, what they can achieve for themselves.
Puzzle Centre is very grateful to Winslow Rotary’s “Polio Immunisation Project Home and away”. Not only will the team be visiting India to help immunise hundreds of children against Polio, but they are also raising funds for children’s charities closer to home. Puzzle Centre is delighted to be one of their chosen charities to benefit from this amazing project. Thank you.
