On September 18th, Surrey First announced an expansion of initiatives to support children with autism.
For children coping with autism, finding a place to ‘feel at home’, can be a challenge.
Surrey First wants to help the 1600 Surrey children with Autism, and their families.
Here is a link to a Surrey Now-Leader news article, with details on the plan.
