Dravet Syndrome UK & National Autistic Society Charity Golf Day

Event date: 23rd June 2023

Bouygues Energies and Services are raising money for National Autistic Society and Dravet Syndrome UK

Our story

The motivation for Bouygues Energies & Services hosting its first charity golf day is to support two worthy causes. All donations will be split equally between the two charities and will go towards making a positive difference. Our event will not only raise funds to help those affected by these neurological disorders but raise awareness and understanding. Please read below for further information on our two chosen charities: National Autistic Society and Dravet Syndrome UK.

** National Autistic Society. **
Autism is a lifelong developmental condition which affects how people communicate and interact with the world around them. It is estimated that more than 1 in every 100 people are on the autistic spectrum and that there are approximately 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK. There are also many individuals who may be struggling with the behaviours associated with autism but remain undiagnosed therefore are unable to be included in these statistics and cannot receive the support they may need. As our understanding of Autism continues to grow, the estimated prevalence has also changed. Those with Autism fall along the spectrum meaning every individual with autism is different and consequently their level of support can vary.
The National Autistic Society (NAS) believes that the government should conduct more research into Autism prevalence to find an accurate figure so that they can improve support and create a society that works for autistic people. NAS supports those with Autism in a huge variety of ways from campaigning for improved rights, running specialist schools, to training companies on being more autism friendly. Their ultimate dedication is to positively impact the lives of those with autism as well as their support network and change societal attitudes towards autism.

Dravet Syndrome UK
Dravet Syndrome UK was founded in 2008 by a group of parents who came together to look for support relating to the neurological condition called Dravet Syndrome. Dravet Syndrome is a life limiting condition which is often described as a rare form of epilepsy; those with the condition suffer from severe and hard to control seizures as well as a varied range of disabilities which can include autism, ADHD or other challenges that can cause difficulties with speech, mobility, eating and sleeping. The common theme across those with Dravet Syndrome is that the condition is complex, symptoms can be interrelated, and seizures are highly unpredictable.
Dravet Syndrome UK’s mission is to bring hope to families living with Dravet Syndrome through support, education and medical research. They currently support over 550 families ensuring each one feels that they are valued and that they are providing the support the family needs most. Dravet Syndrome UK also strives to improve support for professionals to enable earlier diagnosis and the best possible treatment and care for all ages.

Our event will not only raise funds to help those affected by these neurological disorders but will also help raise awareness and bring about a better understanding.
