Koala Kickstarter is launched in Andover

More Education is excited to officially launch the Koala Kickstarter .

The Koala Kickstarter will raise funds to ensure that the Andover-based, autistic-led Koala Community Hub is able to expand and remain operational for the first 4 years. It is planned, from Year 5, that Andover Small School (More Education’s school-based project) can then financially sustain the hub.

These ambitious plans are driven by the need for in-person, autistic-led support and educational opportunities for the autistic and neurodivergent communities across the UK. It is hoped that Koala and Andover Small School will be the first of many projects to open in the next 10 years, across the country.

As part of the Koala Kickstarter , an innovative fundraising project will commence on 1st December with the aim of combatting winter blues and pulling people from across the UK to support the commencement of this movement towards community-led support for Autistic and neurodivergent communities across the country.

Kilometers for Koala will see individuals and teams coming together to achieve their own ambitiously set distance goals for December, while fundraising for the Hub. There will be a supportive facebook group set up for the challenge and local businesses Stannah and Simplyhealth have already agreed to fund match those employees who participate.
