P-05-761 Demand Funding from the Welsh Government to Support Autism Spectrum Connections Cymru



This petition was submitted by Aled Thomas and was first considered by the Committee in June 2017, having collected 148 signatures in an alternative online e-petition.


Text of Petition

We call for the Welsh Assembly Government to give funding to support Autism Spectrum Connections Cymru.


This charity is unique in Wales. Autism Spectrum Connections Cymru currently receives no government funding. It depends entirely on funding from sources that aren't necessarily able to permanently support it. 


This unique open drop-in centre plays an important role in improving the lives of people living with autism in Wales.


We would like to seek reassurance from the Welsh Assembly Government that this charity will always remain open and fully funded.
