Rosie Cooper MP last week cut the ribbon to formally open the first The A World UK CIC store in Skelmersdale’s Concourse Centre. 

The A World UK CIC are a non-profit organisation supporting young people with autism and their families through fully-funded holidays, away days and leisure activities. The activities are funded through collection and re-sale of pre-loved items at more than a dozen stores across the North of England. 

Rosie Cooper MP commented, 

“I was delighted to welcome The A World UK CIC to their new store in the Concourse. For many young people a diagnosis of autism can cause additional challenges or hurdles as they grow up. Individuals on the autism spectrum deserve the acceptance and inclusion to engage fully in society, and their loved ones deserve support as they go above and beyond for their children. 

“That’s why I know this community store will be such a valuable resource, raising money for holidays and leisure experiences to give autistic young people and their families a safe and inclusive space to unwind.” 

Brad Thorpe, Managing Director at The A World UK CIC, said,  

“We are thrilled that The A World UK is expanding into new areas, which will allow us the capacity to offer our services to a wider autism community in Skelmersdale and are delighted to be able to give back to the community via offering our funded family holidays to even more autistic people. 

“It’s great to know that we have the support from all those in Skelmersdale along with Rosie Cooper MP. Since opening the store, we have been overwhelmed by the generosity for the community donating items.”

The A World UK CIC’s new store can be found in Unit 11 at the Concourse Centre, Southway, Skelmersdale.
