This programme is the result of a partnership between the Bank Workers Charity (BWC) and The National Autistic Society (NAS) to raise awareness of autism amongst members of the banking community and make a real difference to the lives of families affected by the condition.
The Bank Workers Charity
Working with leading banks and specialist charities, the Bank Workers Charity (BWC) exists to help current and former bank workers and their families. Whether it is the difficulties of caring for children, partners or parents, issues concerning money, illness or disability, BWC’s advisers guide and aid clients to help them overcome the challenges they face.
The National Autistic Society
The NAS is the UK's leading charity for people affected by autism. We were founded in 1962, by a group of parents who were passionate about ensuring a better future for their children. Today we have 20,000 members, 100 branches and provide:
- information, advice, advocacy, training and support for individuals and their families
- information and training for health, education and other professionals working with people with autism and their families
- specialist residential, supported living, outreach and day services for adults
- specialist schools and education outreach services for children
- out-of-school services for children and young people
- employment training and support and social programmes for adults with autism.
A local charity with a national presence, we campaign and lobby for lasting positive change for those affected by autism in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
