Thank you to everyone who took part in World Autism Awareness Week this year!

We asked our supporters to walk, bake, run, and collect… until everyone understands, and so many of you took on that challenge. The dedication and creativity put into this year’s fundraising and awareness-raising events is nothing short of phenomenal. We cannot thank you enough.

We’ve heard fantastic stories of employers raising awareness by sharing our videos and the Autistic Talent newsletter, as well as hosting stalls and training. We’ve had a huge response from employers wanting to support autistic people into work and we’ve had lots of enquiries about apprenticeships, internships as well as traineeships. Keep up the great work to support us to close the autistic unemployment gap.

If you’d like to get involved in World Autism Awareness Week 2018 then stay tuned. We’ll be letting you know our plans for next year, and beyond, very soon.
