Autism Initiatives Ireland come dancing to raise funds

Huge Congratulations to Staff, Parents, Siblings and Supporters of our charity in Ireland who raised over €29,000 through a Strictly Come Dancing Fundraiser to raise money to buy Sensory Log Cabins. 

The cabins will provide a therapeutic and holistic place for the people who use our services in Ireland and also providing them with sensory supports. It will also provide them with a space where they can go to avail of time on their own or as part of a yoga and mindfulness group. 

Each log cabin will be fitted with sensory items that will be tailored to meet the need of each autistic individual thus encompassing our charities ethos and our values. 

The fundraising efforts started back in April with a launch event and couples pairings and culminated in a glittering finale event on the 8th June in Parkview Hotel.

We're delighted to report that one of the new sensory cabins has now been built thanks to the amazing support we have received.

Thank you to everyone who supported this event, which will make a huge difference to the lives of the autistic people we support in Ireland.
