Welcome to Footprints Life Camp
Farming + Outdoor Education + Life-skills
Happy New Year! We are so pleased with all the achievements of our young people in 2016 and are looking forward to more fun and adventures in 2017...
National Autism Professional Awards 2017
We are absolutely thrilled to report that we have been shortlisted as a finalist for The National Autism Professional Awards as Most Creative Community Project of 2017. We feel very humbled to have been selected out of hundreds of fantastic entries. I would like to thank Lisa Camilleri, Head of The Holmewood School and Olly Dean, Lead Autism teacher for nominating us. I had no idea until they had sent everything off! I may have to swap the wellies and gortex for something a bit more glamourous for the awards ceremony on in March! Thank you to everyone who has supported us from the very beginning. It would not have been possible without you.
New Official Partner 2017
In January 2017 we announced our first official partner as The Holmewood School. We felt this was incredibly fitting as Holmewood have been so supportive of Footprints since the very beginning. We are looking forward to attending the award ceremony together in March 2017 and continuing to work very closely together going forwards.
Footprints Internships 2017
The Footprints internship packs are now ready and can be posted to interested candidates from this week. The application form will also be available on the website over the next few days. Thank you to Kwesi for doing a brilliant job of managing the website! We hope it will provide an opportunity for young people on the spectrum to gain meaningful work experience in a highly supportive environment.
If you or your child are interested in a paid internship at Footprints, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Easter Camp Dates 2017: 10th-14th April 2017
We have now confirmed the official Easter camp dates and secured our booking for the over-night residential stay at Lee Valley. If you would like to book a place for your child please send an email to email@example.com ASAP as places are filling up quickly! We are hoping we may also be able to have a Footprints Bake Off with our lovely friend and volunteer Kara Morrison as we have invited Lisa Camilleri to join us for some tea and cake at our lodge in Lee Valley to say thanks for our nomination and all her generous support.
