AYRSHIRE Children’s Services’ brand new and ground breaking centre officially opened in Ardrossan last week.

Ko-Nekt will change the way disabled and autistic children access support and Liam Black co-founder of Wavelength and former CEO of Fifteen Foundation was on special guest on the day along with Scott Webb, Regional Manager UKSE (UK Steel).

ACS’s new bespoke centre KO-NEKT opened earlier this year and offers flexible support for children and young people with autism and disabilities.

Its tailored approach and flexible access allows parents for the first time to have full control over when they access support, so they can meet the needs of their child at a time when they need it.

KO-NEKT is located in Ardrossan and easily accessed by train, bus or car, it’s open seven days a week from 10am till 8 pm, later at weekends.

Children aged 3-18 years with autism and disabilities can go and play, grow and connect with friends old and new.

Professionally trained staff are on hand to support learning and facilitate play so parents can relax knowing their children are in safe hands.
