Empathy was established in 2010 by a small group of like minded parents to combat the isolation of growing up with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or additional needs. The organisation remains parent run and lead.

Empathy for Special Children (Craven Arms) They welcome children of all abilities but cater best for those children and teenagers who fall in to the “high functioning” category and aim to fill the void for all but particularly those in mainstream education. 

They meet on alternate Saturdays at Craven Arms Community Centre – CasCA (Community arts sports Craven Arms) 2pm to 4pm. Contact Sam Goddard for further details sam@empathyforspecialchildren.org
