A Vital Support for Teens in the West
Autism RPM (rapid prompting method) West are a local voluntary autism organisation from Mayo . They organise amazing weekend group and summer camps for teenagers with autism. Here, they can enjoy all sorts of activities including art, gardening and science.
In 2020, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland was delighted to be able to provide funding towards their annual summer camp, this year of course held under strict COVID guidelines!
We are reliably informed that since the camp took place, many of my camp participants are maintaining friendships and keeping in touch via messages and video calls, with plans to meet up after lockdown! The families who were supported are very happy to see continued positive results from the 8 week summer camp that the group were able to run in July/August, thanks to support from Variety Ireland.
