I was chairman for many years during the planning and building of the wonderful Treehouse School in Woodside Avenue, Muswell Hill, North London within the  Pears National Centre for Autism Education. I am now the President and am helping with the appeal to raise the necessary £5m to build a permanent Ambitious College -an FE college for young people with complex autism at the College of Haringey Enfield and North East London (CONEL) offering young people with autism the specialist education and support they need to transition successfully to an active life as part of their community.
