The initiative is the brainchild of Hearts & Minds Challenge – a charity dedicated to helping families of children with autism. By donating old mobile phones to the charity, they can go towards an exchange for an iPad. The charity needs to collect at least 185 old, broken, damaged or unwanted mobile phones in exchange for a brand new iPad with autism-friendly apps and features. Grasmere Primary School is well known for its inclusivity for children with complex special educational needs and its close working relationship with external professionals supporting children. The scheme has already been rolled out in other areas such as Manchester, Nottingham and Ipswich where it has had great success.
