Ahead of the Local Government Elections in Wales this May, some of our local branches will be hosting events to help council candidates better understand how they can support autistic people and their families in their communities.

If you’re standing for election this May and would like to come along to one of our events, or would like to know more, please email wales@nas.org.uk.

You can download your invitation to either of our events in Swansea or Pembrokeshire. Candidates from other areas are welcome too. 

If you can’t make it to either of our events but would still like further information on autism and what you can do, if elected, to help, take a look at our candidate pack
