Our Honoured Trustee

Congratulations to our Trustee Graham Heywood and his wife Eira, who have both been awarded British Empire Medals in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for their services to Autism.

Graham and Eira founded Bolton Adult Autism Support (BAAS) in 2013 to provide support for autistic adults after their son, Julian (now 50) was diagnosed in later life.

Coming as a complete surprise to both Graham and Eira, Graham said “We wouldn’t be here without the support of many organsiations and people… We are also celebrating as we have been given National Lottery funding for our befriending service.”

Well done Graham and Eira, we are proud of you.
