The latest information about Autism Inclusive right here…

Autism Inclusive named the Mayor of Crewe’s Chosen Charity for 2021/22.

31.05.2021

As you may have seen, Councillor Tom Dunlop was recently made Crewe Town Mayor. Councillor Dunlop has a keen interest in the support of children and young people, and how community programmes can help increase their potential, and was especially interested in the work that we do at AI.

We’re very excited to announce that Autism Inclusive has been chosen as the Mayor’s Charity for the next twelve months. To celebrate, we welcomed both the new Mayor and Mayoress to our setting where they had a chance to meet some of our beneficiary families, discuss the issues and barriers that autism families face, whilst the children quite literally bounced around at our Bubble Football event 🙂

Introducing our newest Trustee, Lillian Rimmington.

31.05.2021

In April our team of Trustees grew to six, as we welcomed Lillian Rimmington. Lil has a wealth of experience to offer and she has already implemented plenty of improved working practices to the daily running of AI.

Whilst working for the NHS, in 2013 Lil initiated a project which raised awareness and improved access to services for people with autism, and received the NHS North West Leadership award for the success of the project. Within a year, the project was implemented across the East-Cheshire NHS Trust, resulting in the Trust being awarded the National Autistic Society’s ‘Autism Accreditation Award’ in 2014.

You may have also spotted the familiar surname; Lil is married to Mick Rimmington. Although Lil is not one for spotlight, you may bump into her during one of Mick’s workshops or during our evening group, so be sure to say hello 🙂 Thanks for joining the team Lil!
