Where does your money go?Your donations are key to us continuing to raise Autism awareness
Anna Kennedy Online may be a small charity and but the charity does big things and is made up mostly of volunteers who combine the ethos and integrity of the founder Dr Anna Kennedy OBE who is passionate about helping society and raising Autism Awareness across the globe by making a difference and by caring about individuals. Our charity has the right ethos and the positive integrity to helping and supporting communities right across the UK and beyond and we are different, we care and many have benefited from a range of training, events, workshops and have left a positive influence of many lives. With our a strong team – nothing is impossible.
In 2018 we reached out to a wide spread audience by offering a range of services, from legal advice, support and speaking to many public bodies such as schools, colleges, and companies (Great Western railways, Heathrow Airport and large blue-chip organisations to name a few) to raise Autism awareness and promote inclusion within their areas of expertise.
Anna Kennedy Online collaborated with Pineapple Arts and offer sponsorship to children and adults on the spectrum, this has been life changing for many and spring boarded into greater opportunities.
Our annual events such as Autism’s Got Talent, Expo and the Autism Hero Awards continue and use these dynamic approaches that tackles both Autism Awareness and celebrating achievements. By combining our work in the mainstream world and reaching out to all of society has enabled us to provide services to more people, support and direction through the existing systems and to reach out as much as we can.
Training / Workshops
In 2018 – Paul Isaacs our ambassador is an autistic trainer, speaker, consultant and blogger. Paul provided some amazing workshops on Language processing and Sensory Integration and the attendees left full of knowledge and key indicators to ensure their journey was forthright.
Previously, we provided training courses and guidance from our legal adviser Sean Kennedy and each session was full. Workshops ranged from SEN and EHCP to SEN and Social Care.
Our core team of Charity Champions, Patrons and Ambassadors work closely together to create fundraising opportunities, from Fun days, Football matches, Zumbathons to Cake sales.
