Please remember to let us know the name and number of the person your letter is for. All pen pals are numbered by the editor, not the person who sends in the advert.

Please remember to put your address on your letter.

To contact a pen pal, please send your letter to:

The Spectrum, c/o The National Autistic Society, 393 City Road, London, EC1V 1NG, or email

We will pass your letter on to the person you wish to contact. However, we cannot guarantee the person will reply as that is entirely their decision.

Please note that all pen pal letters sent via the Spectrum are opened before being passed on.
