Supporting young people to get more active
Magic Moments for Autistic Kids is a charity based in Scunthorpe which supports young people on the autism spectrum and their families.
In early 2022 Magic Moments received some funding from Active Humber to be able to offer the young people they work with weekly football sessions.
These young people struggled to find suitable activities where they were made to feel welcome and their needs could be catered for.
However these sessions have enabled the young people to not only access regular physical activity but to establish their own football team, where they will be able to continue to play and compete longer term.
