Posted on

We are absolutely thrilled to see that the fabulous Anne Ross of ADD-Vance has been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) for her incredible work with families and children with ADHD and Autism.

Anne set up ADD-Vance in 1996 as a parent of children affected by ADHD and Autism as she found little support for mums like her, so wanted to do something about it. ADD-vance started as a telephone help-desk in Anne’s home and grew to include support groups, training and coaching. In 2013 they registered as a charity.

22 years on and ADD-Vance offer:

Training and Consultancy – ADD-Vance provide courses and workshops for practitioners, professionals, parents and carers in education, health and social care

Coaching – They offer coaching sessions either in the home, by phone or Skype. One of their Autism/ADHD Specialist Coaches will work with you on a weekly basis to help support any difficulties to improve your family life. All of their coaches have relevant qualifications and first-hand personal experience of living with these conditions.

Support and Helpdesk – ADD-Vance provide monthly support group meetings in Hertfordshire, (St. Albans and Hertford) plus a telephone helpdesk, 01727 833963.

Membership of ADD-vance is free. Being a member means you will get priority information for ADD-vance courses, training and workshops.

The British Empire Medal is a British medal awarded for meritorious civil or military service worthy of recognition by the Crown. The current honour was created in 1922 to replace the original medal, which had been established in 1917 as part of the Order of the British Empire.

Massive CONGRATULATIONS, Anne – we hope you had a fantastic day and are truly chuffed with all you have accomplished and are still accomplishing!

ADD-vance receives no regular statutory funding to cover their services or core costs so they are dependant on the work of their amazing members to raise funds. Unsurprisingly, donations are of enormous value to them. Even if you can only afford a few pounds, they would very much appreciate your support.
