This is something we took to the board last year after a few conversations with a parent who had lasted 10 minutes with his autistic son at a match. All he ever wanted to do was do the normal parent/child activity of going to the football.
Frank and I proposed to the board and the board felt that the community foundation would be best placed to look into this. The reason being that they are best placed when it comes to funding etc.. Frank and myself also met with the foundation to discuss. Itís certainly not been a No from the club or foundation but does require a lot of work should they be able to facilitate.
The lack of space at the moment is something which is a major issue. The FF boxes cannot be used unfortunately as the area up there requires renovation.
We also now have a Disabled Liaison Officer and after speaking with Frank this morning re this, Anne (our DLO) will be following this up with the Foundation.
It wouldnít be a crŤche facility if we can get something in place but a place as youíve all suggested, where parents can take their children to watch the match in a safe and quiet environment. Thatís what started the conversations in the first place.
Any further information I receive I will let you know.
