Learn a Skill for Tailor Ed!



‘It’s so much easier to communicate with [our son], easier to find out what he wants, less tantrums. We are very happy to see that it’s possible for [our son] to make progress and learn. It gives us hope.’

This festive season we would like to ask you to think of Tailor Ed when you make your New Year resolutions. 

Here at Tailor Ed we are experts in teaching daily living skills to children with autism and we are inviting you to learn a new skill while helping raise money for us through sponsorship. You could learn a new dance, take up a sport or try something completely new. Start by asking everyone you know to sponsor you to learn your skill. 

For example: Our aged Events and Fundraising Officer is learning how to breakdance. Over 6 weeks she will attend lessons and is asking the people around her to sponsor her to complete the block of lessons. At the end she will send her sponsors (and only those) a video of her showcasing her new moves.



As we receive no funding from the Local Authority or the NHS, we need to raise the money from elsewhere. At the moment our core service is funded solely through making applications to various grant making bodies and trusts. To run our core service supporting 200 families in the city as well as supporting the wider Edinburgh autism community through our social and information services, it costs around £260,000 per year. Fundraising is vital to Tailor Ed Foundation so that we may continue providing the very best services for children with autism, their families, friends and carers.

There is a sponsor form available for printing by emailing contact@tailoredfoundation.co.uk or alternatively to ask for sponsorship online, please go to: https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/tailor-ed-foundation/Learnaskillfortailored

Every little helps us to carry out our work. No sponsor amount is too small. It means so much to us that you have chosen to do this for Tailor Ed and we want to celebrate your achievements by sharing them with others. Please send us any photographs and any information on your event or challenge so that we can let everyone know about your contribution. Get in touch via email at contact@tailoredfoundation.co.uk.

We’d like to thank Julian at Bridge End Creative who designed our fabulous campaign poster!
