As part of World Autism Acceptance Week we will be posting a series of blog posts about the work in our communities to make Wrexham Autism Aware, as well as highlighting the information and support that is available to people and families living with autism.
Your Space is a registered charity that works closely with Wrexham Council to provide support for young adults and children on the autism spectrum along with their families.
With events and activities including a teens club, expressive arts, family days out and holiday clubs there is lots to get involved with. You can find out more about the range of activities and support that Your Space offers by visiting their website: Your Space – Supporting Children and Young People with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (yourspacemarches.co.uk)
Your Space has also created some great apprenticeship opportunities for people on the autism spectrum
“I started working at Your Space in September 2021, as an Admin Apprentice doing a years Apprenticeship.
I am on the spectrum myself, so I like the fact that I am helping children and young people that are on the spectrum or have similar issues through my role at Your Space. I have found Your Space an understanding, accepting place to work.
Overall I very much enjoy my role at Your Space, and the people I work with are understanding, helpful and nice people. It’s a nice environment to work in and I feel I have done well in my role, and have gained confidence since starting my role at Your Space.”
