James is 13 year old and has autistic spectrum disorder.
His parents separated when he was four years old. When James’ behaviour became increasing challenging due to his condition, his Freemason father took on full-time care of him and his younger brother at the expense of his business.
Our support means James is able to take part in sporting activities that channel his excess energy. We have provided badminton equipment and have covered the cost of trips to sports centres.
James’s father says: “I am eternally grateful to the RMTGB. The support has been incredible. From the first moment I spoke with the Advice and Support Team I felt a huge sense of relief and felt more confident that I could cope with the challenges. In the near future I'm looking forward to starting my own business. Once again a big thank you for all your help.”
