World Autism Awareness Week is here to help raise awareness and change society for autistic people. It’s also a chance for brilliant people like you to do some fundraising and help transform the lives of some of the 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK. For example, raising:

  • £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
  • We also need the public’s support to raise vital funds to continue running campaigns and influencing government decision making and laws
