365 great things about Staffordshire - Caudwell International Children’s Centre 

A project 10 years in the making, the new £18 million Caudwell International Children’s Centre, set within the grounds of Keele University, Staffordshire, is the first of its kind in the UK – bringing together assessment, diagnosis, family support and research into autism, under one roof.

Designed and built in consultation with people with autism, parents, carers, clinicians and experts, the facility includes state-of-the-art assessment suites, a sensory garden to help children interact with nature and family activity suites for on-going workshops and support programmes.

It will allow parents and children across the UK to work with a multi-disciplinary team of specialists in one place and enable families to get a diagnosis for their child in as little as six weeks.

With a construction cost of £18 millon, funding for the project has been sourced from a number of generous individual philanthropists, and a public fundraising campaign.

The charity’s founder, Staffordshire's John Caudwell, has pledged to personally match every pound donated to the fundraising appeal.
