Emergency Fund Appeal from Autism Hampshire

Autism Hampshire, like many other charities across the whole of the UK is significantly affected during this time of national crisis due to the current Coronavirus pandemic. Autism Hampshire is working extremely hard to continue to provide safe and staffed residential 24 hour care to people that we support in either our residential homes or in their own supported living homes as well as Domiciliary support. Our extremely dedicated and hardworking staff across the whole organisation are going above and beyond to ensure this support continues and the vulnerable people we support continue to receive a safe and caring service. I cannot thank them enough for their commitment, dedication and resilience during what is such a challenging time for everyone.

We also continue to provide a significant and increased amount of telephone support to people with autism via our Information and Advice Service for those who are experiencing much higher levels of anxiety and stress due to the current situation.

Our fundraising income has been decimated, our charity shop is closed providing no income, and all our events over the next 4 months have been cancelled. We are cutting costs back to the absolute minimum ensuring funds are being spent on the priority areas.

So, we must find other means and ways to raise much needed funds to ensure we can continue to cover the additional costs we are incurring at this time and are appealing to our very supportive community of followers to help us.

Today we are launching our Emergency Fund Appeal and any donation you can make will be very much appreciated. If you would like to make a donation to Autism Hampshire to support our critical work at this time please go to:
