Derbyshire based corporate treasure hunts business, “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 Autism 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 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 advice to all that need it, whilst providing a fun environment for everyone to enjoy themselves throughout the day.
One of 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 to use it as a springboard to spread awareness of autism.
