The more money we can raise the more young adults we can reach. They need urgent support especially though these difficult times where we are all feeling that bit isolated. That's where we come in. In order to reduce isolation and the negative consequences of poor mental health we need to connect with our young people in our communities. We are a social enterprise based in Lakhall, recently the runner up for Enterprising organisation of the year!
We tap into the motivations and talents of young people with autism and any additional support need that have barriers to their inclusion in their community.
I am a mum to a 24 year old young man who is a total inspiration to me and many others! I have always encouraged him to follow his dreams which are to act and make movies. So we set up Spark Connections Ltd , a social enterprise which welcomes young adults to come and find their motivation, their talents and together we make movies, animations, do voice overs, do extras acting work and ultimately make friends. We organise social events and want to open up other so that everyone is included... All Means All! Together we are awesome!
What we want to do through Crowdfunder is to create a strong foundation. Everything we have done to date has been self funded... we need to take it to the next level to ensure our young people continue to get the benefits of this project. With your support we can ensure it does by getting someone in to support our team, to train and upskill them, building confidence and self esteem and building real and long term friendships and relationships.
