My Sliding Wardrobe Partners with the National Autistic Society
My Sliding Wardrobe is proud to announce its partnership with the National Autistic Society (NAS) as its Charity of the Year. This collaboration reflects our unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in the community and supporting causes that are close to our hearts.
At My Sliding Wardrobe, we firmly believe in the power of collective action and giving back to our community. That is why we are thrilled to partner with the National Autistic Society as our Charity of the Year. We recognise the incredible work the National Autistic Society does to support individuals with autism and we are eager to join hands with our customers to make a meaningful impact together. By giving our customers the chance to contribute and by quadrupling any donations made by our customers, we hope to raise awareness, funds and create a more inclusive and supportive environment for individuals with autism and their families.
Aaron Cooke, Founder of My Sliding Wardrobe, explains the personal significance of this partnership;
We are a family business and just like almost every other family in the UK, we know someone who lives with autism and in our case, it is our two sons who are both autistic.
The National Autistic Society is a charity with whom our family shares a deep and personal history as they have provided us with advice and support right from the initial delays in our sons’ speech through the official diagnosis procedure and the challenging application processes for education support and this is why they occupy a special place in our hearts.
The National Autistic Society has been an invaluable source of advice and support for our family over many years. That is why we are proud and honoured to support them as our charity of the year and hope to raise thousands of pounds for this amazing organisation and cause.
The National Autistic Society is a leading charity dedicated to transforming the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. Their work includes providing essential support, raising awareness, and advocating for a more inclusive and understanding society. My Sliding Wardrobe is privileged to stand with the charity in its mission and contribute to this vital cause.
Blanche Coalwood from the charity explained;
We at the National Autistic Society rely on support from businesses who operate in the communities we work in and we are so grateful to My Sliding Wardrobe for choosing to support us as their Charity of the Year.
Blanche goes on to describe the invaluable impact the donations from My Sliding Wardrobe and their customers will have;
We have this year launched our new three-year ‘Vision to Reality’ strategy, which defines the unique role the National Autistic Society will play in creating a society that works for autistic people. It will focus on support for all autistic individuals and their families to live a fulfilled life on their terms, to influence and collaborate with others to improve standards and adjustments and to transform society by building understanding, acceptance and respect for all autistic people.
We are really excited and looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together to help ensure we can continue to provide the crucial support autistic people and their families need. Thank you, My Sliding Wardrobe.
As part of My Sliding Wardrobe’s commitment to the National Autistic Society, we are introducing a new initiative that allows our customers to make a difference with every purchase by enabling them to make an optional order top-up donation. Starting in November 2023, each customer will have the opportunity to donate to the National Autistic Society at the checkout when they purchase one of our sliding wardrobes and that’s not all, as part of our commitment to this partnership, My Sliding Wardrobe pledges to contribute £3 for every £1 raised through our customer donations, essentially quadrupling the impact of each individual’s contribution to this fantastic cause.
The partnership between My Sliding Wardrobe and the National Autistic Society exemplifies our commitment to corporate social responsibility and our dedication to making a positive difference in the lives of those who need it most. We invite our customers, employees, and the wider community to join us in supporting The National Autistic society and helping create a world where individuals on the autistic spectrum can thrive.
