Why we developed the training

Active for autism is a new, three year, funded project designed to support people with autism in sport or physical activity by providing training for sports practitioners. This project has been made possible with support from The Peter Harrison Foundation, Sylvia Adams Trust, HiT Entertainment, and Weinstock Fund. 

The National Autistic Society has developed training materials which will aim to increase:

  • the confidence and skills of sports practitioners, delivering sport for people with autism that is inclusive and enabling them to engage and involve vulnerable people in meaningful ways
  • the levels of participation of people with autism in sport, empowering them to make informed choices about their physical activity and sustaining their involvement over time
  • the self-esteem and wellbeing of people with autism through their participation in sport, improving their enjoyment and providing sense of achievement in their physical abilities.
