Applicant: A.S.G Autism Social Group
Title: Autism Support Projects
Area: Anglesey 
Amount Requested: £2,500.00

Project Outline: 

So much hate crime stems from a lack of knowledge or understanding, leading to fear of a certain minority, we believe that A.S.G has a unique opportunity to reduce organized hate crime by vigorously promoting Awareness and Understanding of ASD before it progresses, we believe we can achieve this aim by holding public talks, creating promotional material, and working with other charitable causes.

People on the Autistic Spectrum are quite often the most vulnerable when it comes to hate crime and domestic abuse, this could simply be down to relatives having a lack of knowledge of Autism and therefore inadvertently causing serious harm to a person’s mental health, those who are victims of abuse will quite often not know how to speak out, leaving themselves open to serious harm.

Our social sessions are all about strengthening and, most importantly, understanding each other where anyone on the Autistic spectrum can find a place where they can be themselves without felling judged or secluded, over time this often helps relive huge amounts of anxiety and of course takes people away from the struggles they might be facing in everyday life.

Applicant: Digartref Cyf, Llys Y Gwynt
Title: Gardens Galore
Area: Anglesey
Amount Requested: £2,500.00

Project Outline: 

Digartref provides a range of services including supported housing schemes for young people aged 16-24 who are homeless. Many of the residents are from disadvantage backgrounds.

In March 2018 residents started a garden project. The garden was cleared and weeded and five vegetable and flower beds were installed.

Our project aims to provide residents with a sense of responsibility and foster positive behaviors.  It is widely recognized that regular contact with the natural environment can improve our physical health and well-being. Not only does gardening provide opportunities for increasing knowledge but it also improves confidence resilience and self-esteem.

Our project gives residents a sense of responsibility and steers them away from any negative crime, anti-social behavior thus delivering a safer neighborhood.
