St. Felix School - Short Break 2022 Sunday 29th May 2022 - Wednesday 1st June 2022
The group consisted of 11 adults and 17 children - families with children with autism who stayed in Clough House for the duration of the short break. We attempted one outing to the Alfred Corry Lifeboat Museum and Southwold Pier.
The group wanted no further outings because they loved the school grounds so much, where they felt safe and contained and not judged by families who are unaware of autism.
“Thanks Ann & Deborah for a fantastic opportunity to get away together as a family and be with others who understand. Something I wouldn’t have been able to organise. Special memories created”.
“It was lovely for the siblings to be amongst others who understood and did not judge their brother”.
“The space and environment was conducive to enjoying the freedom of the countryside whilst also being safe.”
“Our kids got on so well, it was great”
“Just wanted to say thank you to all of you. We had such a lovely time. The barbecue was delicious”.
“Thanks for the great, peaceful break. It feels so weird back in London with so much rush in the streets. ‘S’ asking if we can go back, so I know she must have enjoyed it, definitely.”
