What people are saying “Keeping Neurodivergent People Connected has been helping me keep in touch with real people during the lockdown. Until Angie met up with me – at a safe distance – I had not spoken to another human face to face for a couple of months, other than in shops. It really did make a huge difference, as my depression was going into overdrive at that point. thank you, Angie, and S4Nd” Colm, Upper Calder Valley

KNPC is run in Calderdale by the Society for Neurodiversity (S4Nd) and is funded by Community Foundation for Calderdale.
