People Matter IW

People Matter IW lend out sensory equipment for families and individuals with autism, ADHD and learning disabilities. A grant of £1,000 for new equipment meant the organisation could meet additional client need during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The items provided helped to calm anxieties and provide stimulation and exercise, while helping to avoid mental health deterioration and challenging behaviour within family units.

Volunteers delivered the equipment directly to families, making sure each item was cleaned and disinfected before re-use.
