"Practical support and therapy is needed more now than ever before in these challenging times. Covid-19 is impacting young people's mental health and emotional well-being and this funding will ensure we are providing the most appropriate support to these families."
Specialist Autism Support for Children
Mustard Seed Autism Trust is thrilled to have received a grant of £8,608 to deliver specialist autism support to help Hampshire families with children to manage daily life. The grant from the National Emergencies Trust/DCMS Fund will ensure children are supported to feel in control of their bodies and given techniques to reduce anxiety and learn strategies to cope in all situations, while learning how to communicate their own choices to keep themselves safe, healthy and happy.
Mustard Seed provides families with optimism for the future and offers a sense of purpose and belonging to families that may be struggling to cope with life.
