If any workplace was thinking about taking part next year, we would say do it! Be a progressive workplace which encourages diversity and acceptance, while having a bit of fun in the process!

Only 16% of autistic adults are in full-time paid employment. And in almost a decade the situation hasn’t improved. All too often, employers don’t see ability. They see autism. They see a problem.

WAAW 2017 raised over £295,000! This is a huge achievement by all who took part in the week and will go towards funding ground breaking work, such as our Too Much Information employment campaign, which is helping to educate workplaces to better support their autistic employees.

We cannot stop here though as there is so much more to be done. That’s why we need your help this World Autism Awareness Week, so that we can reach even more people and help more autistic people get employed.
