Spectrum - Autism Friendly Festival

In 2017 peaksGO approached Autism East Midlands with an idea to run an event which would help to raise awareness for Autism whilst helping to educate and support people that need it. The event would also allow people with on the spectrum to have fun in an environment where they can truly be themselves.

This

year Autism East Midlands will be celebrating their 50th anniversary and what better way to celebrate than with a festival. It was decided that on the 23rd September of 2018 peaksGO and AEM will be hosting the first ever Autism friendly focused festival.

With the support of Lea Green outdoors activity centre and many local sponsors, our aim is to educate families, giving guidance, support and advise to all that need it, whilst providing a fun environment for everyone to enjoy themselves throughout the day.

The founders of peaksGO has two young sons, both of whom have been diagnosed with Autism. By setting up peaksGO he wanted to achieve two things, build something fun and successful that he could pass onto his children and use it as a springboard to spread the word about Autism and its many wonderful traits.
