How this cause brings people in the community together

Our range of social and wellbeing projects will continue to support a large number of vulnerable, isolated autistic children and their families, who are in desperate need for community, understanding, friendship and specialist knowledge about autism. mASCot member children and their families experience high levels of exclusion in their lives because of their hidden disabilities. Through mASCot's specialist approaches, they can have access to the kinds of activities and enriching life experiences that most children and families can engage in every day.
