Without the help of our supporters the success of the Autism Friendly Award would not have been possible. We are in contact with lots of businesses about how they can become more autism friendly but we know there is always more we can do. If you feel as though a business in your area or who you know could benefit from the Autism Friendly Award, we have a range of tools to help you in approaching them.

Here is our step-by-step guide to encouraging a business to become autism friendly:

  1. Ask them what they know about autism already and open up a conversation
  2. Send them this letter from the National Autistic Society, explaining the awards and the importance of becoming autism friendly
  3. Ask the business to consider holding an Autism Hour
  4. Encourage them to apply for an award
