eastbourne buzz news - Families For Autism New Shop
 

Charity Families for Autism are excited to announce the opening of its new charity shop in Eastbourne.

The new shop and office can be found at 6 the Labyrinth, 7 Mark Lane and will be selling a range of quality used items, such as clothes, toys, books, DVD’S, small electrical equipment and art and craft items made by the charities children and young people. The new premises will provide an opportunity for the charity to engage direct with the community and will be a hub for sharing information to families needing support.

Mark Jones, Trustee & Chief Executive Officer said, “This is an amazing opportunity for the charity to create volunteering opportunities for people on the autistic spectrum. They will be able to work within the shop, be supported through a training program, encouraged to develop their own personal skills and abilities, and hopefully will allow us to set the foundation for future employment prospects. All income generated through shop sales will continue to help build and establish Families for Autism as a unique service provider within Eastbourne and East Sussex”.

The charity will be officially opening its new shop on the 1 November 2016 and looks forward to welcoming all visitors.
