Hibs’ Community Foundation will be holding an Open Day (Saturday 24 January, midday-2pm) at the club’s training centre to  offer boys and girls with autism, aged 7-16 and from across the Lothians, the chance to build their football and interpersonal skills and to make new friends.

Parents are invited to come along and hear more about the programme, their play-to-learn approach and how they hope to develop a pathway of support for young people with autism.

This  project will link to community football and will include involvement from many other Scottish football clubs who are developing similar programmes.

To find out more, parents and children can join us on Saturday 24 January at Hibernian Training Centre, East Mains, Ormiston, East Lothian, EH35 5NG. If you would like to come along for a front-row seat just e-mail office@lothiansautistic.org or call 0131 661 3834.

You don’t even need to be a Hibee to join in – everyone’s welcome!

From February 2015 there will be weekly evening sessions at the Hibernian Training Centre in Ormiston, 6pm-7pm. Sessions will be led by professional coaches, supported by Lothian Autistic Society staff. There will be no cost to take part in these activities
