My name is Louisa, and I’m a 49-year-old autistic woman. Ever since I can remember, autism has affected my day-to-day life. It can be lonely and frustrating, but you can help someone like me.  

The hardest time of my life was in 2015, when I lost my parents. I felt very isolated and completely helpless. I lived independently but I’d always relied on them to be there for me, so there were so many things I didn’t know how to do. It was the first time I was really on my own. That’s when I called the National Autistic Society Helpline.

The voice on the end of that phone kept me going and made me feel so much better. They helped me with practical advice, as well as dealing with my grief. 

Giving a gift today could support the Helpline service, and help ensure people like me get the support and guidance they need.

Thank you,
