Our favourite week is quickly approaching us, and with your help we can make it the biggest World Autism Awareness Week yet. To help inspire you, your friends and family, we’ve shared below some ways of getting involved. Take a look!

  1. See the city in a different light – take part in our Spectrum Night Walks in cities across the UK!
    Put your best foot forward and take to the streets of London, Glasgow, Manchester, Cardiff or Belfast with Team Autism on Saturday, 6 April. It’s our biggest walking event of the year, and one not to be missed. If this doesn’t stop you in your tracks, then maybe our next option will…
  2. Go the distance with our 7k for 700k virtual challenge
    Perfect for those with a busy schedule - you can choose the distance you want to cover, pick a time, date and place. Take a look at what Thomas achieved last year in this video:



  3. Throw a mouth-watering Spectrum Bake Sale
    There are so many ways to get involved, so why not make it a treat? For cake connoisseurs we have a Spectrum cake recipe from our President, Jane Asher. And for those who are beginners, we have a Spectrum cupcakes recipe.
  4. Your child’s school could win a visit from our favourite I’m a Celebrity contestant, Anne Hegerty!
    Now back in civilisation after her jungle journey, Anne will be visiting a school who are taking part in World Autism Awareness Week. To take part in the competition, sign up here.

It only takes a few minutes to sign up, and in return you will also receive Chris Packham’s sweepstake poster, Anne Hegerty’s fiendishly difficult quiz and loads of fundraising tips! It’s a no-brainer.


A big thank you to AXCIS Education for supporting our schools activity during World Autism Awareness Week.
