Project Aspie is a Social Enterprise that is geared towards raising the profile of people with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism within the community.
Project Aspie was founded by Graeme Croton.
Originally Project Aspie was a simple idea that stemmed from Graeme's late diagnosis of Autism in July 2010 when he was twenty-five-years of age.
Graeme wanted to put something back into the community and he wanted to offer the help and support to others with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism.
Project Aspie was initially an Award Winning Community Advocacy and Support Website and went from strength to strength in a short space of time winning various awards.
It made its transformation in becoming a new organisation that is geared towards raising the profile of people with Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism within the community. Project Aspie was created and developed to change, improve and inspire people with Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism to live healthy and independent lives.
We have a simple ethos “Project Aspie is run by Autistics to inspire others with Autism” and it is this ethos that makes Project Aspie different, new and unique.
Everything which Project Aspie creates and develops is for people with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism in mind.
Our Motto is “Everything is possible but without will power there is nothing”.
Our Aims, Objectives and Values as an organisation is to:
Improve the quality of lives for people with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism within the community.
Raise awareness of the positive qualities of Asperger's Syndrome and Autism.
Provide unique opportunities for people on the Autistic Spectrum to gain Confidence to live a healthy and independent life.
We are committed and dedicated to see an Autism friendly environment in Employment, Education and Independent Living.
Project Aspie is delivering dynamic, interactive and versatile services including Presentations and Training in Asperger's Syndrome and Autism.
We also launch Campaign Events and Community Projects including our Community Initiative 'Alphabet 12' that is geared towards offering Confidence, Motivation and Opportunities for people with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism.
Project Aspie is creating and developing New Programmes and Services, a part of Project Aspie's new development and progession phase for 2017 and 2018.
