Most of the bookings for our training and meeting rooms are for what you would expect to be held at Weatherill House such as networking events, training courses and client meetings. However, Monday 26 March saw a new use for one of the rooms when Felicia Higgins, founder of social enterprise sCrumbtious Kakes, set up her Easter bunny modelling workshop as part of a new service Time For AC.
The aim of Time For AC and her workshop was to provide an opportunity for carers and parents of children on the autistic spectrum to come together and have some dedicated ‘me’ time and to get away from some of the stresses and strains that caring for them brings each day. It was also an opportunity for the social entrepreneur, who has two teenage children with autism, to connect with other parents and gain the much needed feedback on her new service.
Everyone on the workshop was proud to be able to create and take away their very own Easter bunnies and get to know other parents and carers.

Felicia took part in the SEEK programme that aims to help unemployed and economically inactive people start a social enterprise and has received funding under the Building Better Opportunities Programme which is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.
