Our first ever virtual festival took place at the weekend and was a fantastic success!

The event, which included a fantastic range of stimulating and educational workshops and activities, was focussed on helping young people with ASC, mental health difficulties and/or SEND and their families cope as they make the transition back to school and day to day life after lockdown.

Aspens Fest 2020 organiser Penny Piggott, Aspens' Head of Family and Specialist Support Services and Debbie Davison, parent of a child with ASC who took part in the festival, were interviewed by Mark Carter on his BBC Radio Sussex breakfast show on Saturday.

A huge thanks to Penny and her team, all the businesses and individuals who supported the event and to WSCC (West Sussex County Council) and CCG commissioning partners who funded Aspens Fest 2020.
