#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of unity in response to the Coronavrius. A day where we can all come together to recognise, celebrate and give thanks for the incredible outpouring of compassion we have witnessed during this crisis.
On Tuesday 5th May, we are asking people to share a message of thanks on social media, or if able to, donate to our Emergency Fundraising Appeal.
A significant percentage of our fundraising comes from charity events and individual challenges, which we are unable to hold for the foreseeable future due to restrictions on social gatherings. This makes it more difficult for us to support the thousands of disabled children who so desperately need our help.
Without our continued support, disabled children will become the silent and forgotten victims of this terrible crisis.
How we’re responding to the crisis
*Providing families with assessments via videocalls or telephone to continue the Caudwell Children Autism Assessment Service
*Delivering ASDAN programmes to children in their home with telephone and online support
*Delivering a short breaks service for children and families in the home with telephone and video link support
*Collaborating with partners to offer legal advice where needed
*Extending our telephone, email and online advisory service to families
*Producing home support/activity packs for children and families
*Continuing to support applications for much needed equipment
*Continuing to adapt our services week by week throughout this period to ensure they meet the changing needs of beneficiaries
