On Thursday 18th June, Patricia Ferguson MSP for Maryhill joined the young people at East Park in breaking ground on an exciting new project to build more classrooms, a residential house and respite centre so they can help more children with additional support needs.

The project will deliver a specialist one to one support service for children with autism spectrum disorder who also have additional support needs including learning disabilities, attachment disorder, ADHD, epilepsy and other developmental disorders.

Judy Cromarty, East Park's Executive Director, said"This is a truly unique project that will give children with the most challenging needs a chance to go to school and live in a nurturing environment."

"East Park is a place where the children and young people are encouraged to reach their maximum potential and learn the skills needed to prepare them for adult life and ulitmately enjoy being part of their community."

East Park is reaching out to the community to ask for their help to raise the final £50,000 of the £3 million project.
