  • A social story of the day

Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it – here is what one of our All Aboarders said last year:

The joy on my son's face during the whole day! Also how lovely all the NAS staff and volunteers were, just happy, helpful people who really seemed to care and wanted us to get the most out of our day. We have done this event since it started and it has become part of our year.
