Donate today to change the life of a person with autism

Your gift today could help provide families like Rocco’s with the support they need to live the life that they choose. It will help to fund services like our Autism Helpline, which gives thousands of people who have nowhere else to turn access to the help and advice they so desperately need.


Your gift of £15 could help another family like Rocco’s.

When Rocco’s parents, Marylisa and Scott first got in contact with the National Autistic Society’s Croydon Resource Centre and met their Family Support Worker, Linda, they lacked confidence and didn’t know where to start.

As with all parents, what they wanted for Rocco was simple – for him to be happy and supported. But they needed advice on Rocco’s education and on managing some of his difficult behaviours.


“The National Autistic Society's Autism Helpline can be a lifeline whenever coping with autism gets too much.”

Your gift of £25 could mean five more worried parents, like Jacqui, have access to the support and advice they so desperately need. Jacqui's son Luke has autism and experienced ten years of constant bullying in school. Children called him a 'freak' and a 'weirdo', and there were many times when Luke felt isolated, afraid and alone.


“One miserable Friday evening I pushed open the doors to the NAS Social Group and the pieces of the puzzle came together."

Your gift of £50 can help five people who would otherwise be completely isolated by giving them the opportunity to attend our Adult Social Groups. Daniel was diagnosed at the age of 18. “For a very long time life for me was grim. I was in trouble, I wasn’t doing anything and I was ashamed to carry the label ‘autism’.


Your donation really counts

Without the incredible support of people like you, we wouldn’t be able to continue our vital work. By giving a gift of any amount, you can make a massive difference to the lives of the 2.7 million people living with autism across the UK.
