Unfortunately this project was not successful.

Our aim is to help extend our project, employ more staff, recruit volunteers, buy equipment and help us to engage more children.

KO-NEKT is a safe place for children aged 3-18yrs who have Autism and additional support needs. They live in isolation from their peers and the world around. They don’t get invited to parties or friends houses they 

live with crippling anxiety. The centre is open 7 days from 9till8, this takes a lot of resources, staffing being the biggest. KO-NEKT needs funds to take a big step forward so we can include more children and open later at weekends. This fund will help us reach a level where we can include 100 new children. That’s only £41.00 per child per mth who will have unlimited access for life.

The children below speak for themselves...

I love KO-NEKT I come on Saturday mornings and Wednesday nights I have new friends and get to watch movies I like.

I get scared outside it gets to loud and my tummy hurts it makes me scream. KO-NEKT is great place I only get scared a little there.

Hi my vision for my Centre is to include as many children as possible, before KO-NEKT I had no friends and stayed at home most of the time. If the centre was open late at weekends I could run a club for teenagers to play music and chill out.
