The Anderson Foundation is the charitable foundation of the Anderson Group of Companies. The Anderson Foundation and its donors have been long-term supporters of our work at The National Autistic Society. Our new Anderson School at the Enterprise Campus represents the culmination of a shared vision to create a ground breaking, state-of-the-art education facility for young autistic people to prepare for the world of work and adulthood.
The Anderson Foundation’s support has gone beyond financial help – many of their supporters have committed to creating work placements in their own businesses to ensure that all students have the best possible start in life. This experience could be the difference between students feeling confident, able and experienced in the world of work and being unable to ever access good employment opportunities.
The Anderson team have also worked closely both with us at The National Autistic Society and other leading education providers to design and build a school environment that is autism-friendly and will help our students to thrive. We are immensely grateful to everyone associated with the Anderson Foundation and to its founder, Mark Anderson, in particular, for the support and commitment they have shown to this exciting and life-changing project.
