Caudwell International Children’s Centre Launch – 16th May 2019

The new £18 million Caudwell International Children’s Centre (CICC), set within the grounds of Keele University, Staffs, is the first of its kind in the UK – bringing together assessment, diagnosis, family support and research into autism, under one roof.

Designed and built in consultation with people with autism, parents, carers, clinicians and experts, the facility includes state-of-the-art assessment suites, a sensory garden to help children interact with nature and family activity suites for on-going workshops and support programmes.

It will allow parents and children across the UK to work with a multi-disciplinary team of specialists in one place and enable families to get a diagnosis for their child in as little as six weeks.

The innovative building design and new approach to autism support was the brainchild of long-serving charity Chief Executive, Trudi Beswick.
