In the week of 30 March - 5 April we encouraged the public to take part in World Autism Awareness Week – a full seven days where people across the UK take part in activities to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society.

During unprecedented change and uncertainty, we’re grateful to everyone who was able to adapt and provide support to our charity. We hope our resources and advice have been a source of help to autistic people and their families, and the public learnt more about the five top things autistic people want them to know.

How you can still get involved from home

We need your help now more than ever to continue to provide support to autistic people and their families, who fear change and feel isolated more than most under normal circumstances. If you are in a position to do so, we’ve made it easy for you to do fundraising activities during the week from the safety of your home.

Why we need your support

We’ve come a long way in raising awareness about autism but there's still more to be done. We need the public’s support to raise vital funds to continue running campaigns and influencing government decision making, training and sharing knowledge with professionals working with autistic people, and so much more – and that’s where you come in.

  • £5 could pay for a recently diagnosed adult to call our helpline for support and advice
  • £40 could pay for a parent of an autistic child to have an hour long telephone consultation with our Education Rights Service
  • £200 could fund our Parent to Parent service for a day.
