SUPPORTING AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

Club supporting campaign with Track NN at the Good Friday game

28 March 2021

As part of April's Autism Awareness Month, Northampton Town will be hosting a special virtual event for autistic supporters at the Shrewsbury Town game on Good Friday as part of the club's partnership with TRACK NN.

TRACK NN was set up by Tom Cliffe to help autistic people gain access to employment through training, consultancy and creating opportunities, and to support their work, the club have declared the Shrewsbury Town game on Good Friday as Autism Awareness Day.

Prior to kick off TRACK will host a Zoom meeting so that supporters can see behind the scenes of a matchday (Recorded Changing Room Tour) and listen to some messages from players as well.

"We are delighted to be partnering with TRACK NN to make Good Friday our Autism Awareness Day," said Chief Executive James Whiting.

"We are very proud partners of TRACK NN and are delighted to see their work going from strength to strength. We hope anyone joining us through this venture enjoys the game on Good Friday and that our partnership with TRACK NN helps to educate and make more people aware of the fantastic work they do.

"This day forms part of our equality and diversity work to make the club and matchdays inclusive for all."

Tom Cliffe, Director of TRACK NN added: "We are delighted to be working together for this game, to allow people to support their local team. April is autism awareness month, and we will be working with the club to provide lots of information before, during and after the game to make sure people enjoy their day and can find out more about autism.
