Autism Charity Eyes Local Office Move

Posted on: 27/10/2017

Regional charity Autism Wessex is looking to move from its office in Christchurch and is calling out to local businesses or charities that may have office space available, or might be considering a move themselves, to get in touch.

Next year is a landmark year for the charity who will celebrate its 50th anniversary. With a strong connection to the local community, having been based in Christchurch since it was founded in 1968, Autism Wessex is looking at options for bigger, more modern office space in the local community.

Siún Cranny, Chief Executive Officer at Autism Wessex, said; “As we approach our 50th year we would like to explore a move from our site on Bargates. We have simply outgrown the current space and, as part of our commitment to our staff and those that we support, we would like to move to a space that will best serve our work now and in the future. We are looking for an office that is approximately 4000 sq ft in size or shared space for up to 40 people, based in the local community. We are keeping an open mind at the moment and would love to hear from any businesses or charities that either have space that they are looking to fill or are thinking of a move themselves.”

Autism Wessex provides varied and far reaching services to anyone affected by autism. These include social care, adult residential services, an information and advice service and education provision, Portfield School.

Anyone that might be interested in discussing further is invited to contact Kevin Medcraft, Facilities Manager at Autism Wessex, by email at kevin.medcraft@autismwessex.org.uk or by calling 01202 703596.
