2020 and 2021 were extremely challenging years for so many people, and 2022 presents many new challenges. Generally, the tightening of purse strings has led to charities losing donations. As part of Collins Sarri Statham Investments commitment to the local community we have chosen to support a local charity based in Muswell Hill called ‘Ambitious About Autism’.
This is their story.
It started in 1997 with a group of parents setting up “TreeHouse School”. This was a time when children with autism faced little or no chance of receiving a full and rewarding education, and these parents were determined to change this trajectory for their children.
Their pioneering approach evolved into a UK national charity supporting thousands of children and young people with autism. We run schools and a college that focus on improving the quality of life of autistic pupils and learners to enable them to learn, thrive and achieve. Ambitious about Autism moved to Muswell Hill, in 2004 into a purpose-designed building, the Pears National Centre for Autism Education, in 2009.

At CSS Investments we are proud to have been helping to support Ambitious About Autism over the last year. During 2022 we expect to be doing more to participate in their fund raising activities, sponsored events and helping to raise awareness via increased publicity.
We know that our website followers will be interested in finding out more about Ambitious About Autism and possibly making a donation – so may we thank you in advance for giving this worthy charity due consideration.
