With the advent of lockdown, many have felt isolated in the community and have struggled to maintain a healthy social life. This coupled with the isolation those on the spectrum can experience, many autistic people have felt removed their social groups, friends and family. This project aims to reduce the isolation of these individuals by offering essential IT knowledge, support and equipment to help them to regain their much deserved place within our greater community.
HOW DO WE REACH ISOLATED PEOPLE?
The issue with reaching those who isolate themselves is that they have, for a multitude of reasons, shut themselves away from the wider community. This can be a decision caused by overwhelming anxiety, poor communications skills, lack of mobility and lack of support among other things.
To address this, we have advertised this project through a great range of mediums both online and offline in hopes to gain the attention of those isolated or supporters of them.
