The team at Autism West has some exciting news we wanted to share with you!
We are excited to announce that Autism West has moved to Fremantle, opening a dedicated centre on the ground floor or Fremantle Hospital on the corner of Alma Street and South Terrace.
This move to the heart of Fremantle will allow us to provide young people with autism and their families even more opportunities as the organisation continues to grow and we continue to explore collaborative relationships with local Fremantle businesses and organisations. The centre will be designed in conjunction with our young members over the coming few months, with plans for a sensory space, quiet zone, gaming zone, and more.
“We look forward to welcoming participants and families – both new and old – to our new centre in Fremantle. We are also happy to continue our presence in the Western suburbs with one of our youth groups moving to Claremont, continuing our long and happy relationship with the area.” – Louise Sheehy, Acting CEO
About Autism West
Autism West is a Western Australian not-for-profit providing unique opportunities for children, teenagers and young adults on the autism spectrum to gain skills and experience, enabling them to connect successfully with others and the world around them. They aim to motivate them, build their strengths, and provide a platform for achieving great things. Together, we develop projects that engage and challenge, teaching them skills for life.
Autism West runs a variety of highly successful social groups, including the Telethon Holiday Makers Program for ages 5-18, Awesome Group for ages 10-15, YES Group for ages 13-18, Step Into Social for ages 18-30, and special interest programs such as Coding, Music and Visual Arts. They also coordinate events such as the annual Autism West Symposium to beheld this year in November 2017 in Fremantle, to ensure families have access to the latest information.
“We are thrilled to be moving into the Fremantle premise. The children and young adults will have a space that they have input in designing and making their own. Being in Fremantle is very exciting, there is so much to do and experience. Being part of a central hub will enable Autism West to build partnerships and relationships in and around the community, opening up new opportunities and experiences that will support our young people to further grow and reach their full potential.” – Silvana Gaglia, Chair
