In 2017, The Masonic Charitable Foundation donated £4,624 to Autism Berkshire
This grant is helping to fund the Siblings Rock! programme; a peer support group for children and young people who have a brother or sister with autism. Research shows that having a sibling with special needs be an isolating experience, particularly for the many siblings who carry out a caring role. Facilitated by qualified and friendly staff, this group offers emotional and peer support in a fun and relaxed environment.
This generous support from the Freemasons will help us to continue to deliver our range of support services and leisure and social activities for individuals and families living with autism throughout Berkshire.
