Claire began volunteering by helping to raise awareness and acceptance in her community. She now works as a project co-ordinator for our charity.

Claire's daughter, Rebecca, is autistic and when she was first diagnosed, Claire turned to the National Autistic Society for help. Rebecca took part in social groups and post-diagnostic groups, while Claire got support from parent information groups. 

Claire went on to take a Masters in Autism at the University of Strathclyde, and volunteered for the National Autistic Society to gain invaluable experience.
