"The relationship the National Autistic Society has with the Anderson Foundation is incredibly important to us."Mark Lever, former Chief Executive, National Autistic Society
Founded in 2003, the Anderson Foundation not only raises funds for the National Autistic Society (NAS), but also pulls on Anderson’s 30 years of experience and influence in the construction industry to ensure works undertaken on behalf of the charity are done so in a cost-efficient manner to gain maximum value for the beneficiaries.
The foundation’s landmark project was the building of the National Autistic Society Anderson School in Chigwell, Essex, which forms a school and enterprise campus on the former Tottenham Hotspur training ground, specifically designed for young people with autism.
The school was funded by the Anderson Foundation and was made possible with generous contributions of money, time and expertise from Anderson’s suppliers and associates.
Opening its doors in 2017, the Anderson School in Chigwell, Essex now delivers specialist education provision for 128 pupils aged 11 to 25 in a 3,500m² building designed in full consultation with the NAS.
The Anderson Foundation continues to raise funds through a variety of events including a summer ball and Christmas luncheon and an annual Anderson charity bike ride and many people running the London Marathon.The Anderson Foundation
