About the Programme

Keep Achieving is an energetic pathway programme over 3 years, which aims to help children who have autism and their families become more active together and remain so, by taking part in a programme of enjoyable activities which are as autism-friendly and family-friendly as possible.

How to Access Keep Achieving

Activities will be advertised in advance and access is through self referral to the project team:

  • Mark Axler - Project Manager
  • Jez Janda - Graduate Psychologist
  • James Smolinski - Graduate Psychologist

In its first year 2018, Keep Achieving successfully launched projects for children aged 5-10 years in 4 catchment areas across South Staffordshire: these were Tamworth / Lichfield (October 2018), Cannock / Rugeley (February 2019), Burton / Uttoxeter (June 2019) and Stafford / Stone (September 2019). With the launch of each new project, previous projects are maintained so that activities continue to be available to families. This coming year, we will be returning to each location to launch the programme to the next "Sport England" age group, which is children over 10 years of age.
