A CHARITY which provides activities for adults with autism has a new home in Birchwood thanks to UBC.

Creating Adventures brings fun, support and new opportunities to the lives of adults with additional needs.

Founded by Jenny Allcock in 2016, it enables people to take part in the activities they enjoy, such as music, art, horticulture and sport.

For much of the charity’s early years, Jenny used a home office when she needed to take care of organisational tasks and back office work.

However, in October, after being introduced to UBC Birchwood's Samantha Snelson by Diane Lomax at Cheshire Connect, Jenny was offered an office at UBC’s Rutherford House.

Jenny said: "Samantha very kindly offered to support Creating Adventures by providing us with a gorgeous office at their Birchwood serviced offices at Rutherford House.

"I can’t tell you how fantastic this is.

"Working from home previously for 18 months was isolating so to come to a lovely, clean, friendly office space, which I can’t recommend highly enough, is just wonderful.

"The team are extremely helpful and a serviced office takes all the hassle away."

Colony Networking, a partner of UBC who will be holding networking events at Rutherford House in 2019, has also chosen to support Creating Adventures throughout 2019, which provides the charity with a fantastic opportunity to build their network and raise awareness of their work.

Jenny and the team have wasted no time in planning a number of events throughout 2019.

These include an inclusive sport and wellbeing festival with Warrington Wolves Foundation, arts and craft sessions, a coffee social club for adults and carers, a Makaton Sign assisted Rock Choir, and a number of seasonal fairs and parties.
