If you care for a child or young person with autism and severe learning difficulties, you are eligible for a comprehensive range of support from Seashell Trust.

This is the second of several sessions aimed at helping families deal with everyday issues like mealtimes, communication, behaviour and looking for ways to help your child become more independent.

In this session, Royal College Manchester tutor Joe Booker will discuss some of the ways we can help children and young people to become more independent outside of their school and college learning.

Artwork by students from Seashell Trust has taken pride of place at an exhibition in Buckingham Palace.

Our students made the embellished felt artwork as a 90th birthday gift for the Queen, who is the patron of Seashell Trust.

The exhibition, viewed by half a million visitors, was curated from thousands of gifts the monarch has received during her 65-year reign.

The Seashell picture was one of just 200 items selected and was displayed in the Ball Supper Room at the Queen's official residence in London.
