A family in a garden

Become a member to join our supportive autism community. Whether you're autistic, or you support someone who is, you can access membership benefits.

In 1962, a small group of parents gathered around a kitchen table to talk about their children's futures. With a lot of hard work and determination, they founded our charity. Today, over 20,000 members share their goal of creating a better a world for autistic people and their families. Together, we can get closer to achieving this goal.
