Promoting the Acceptance, Inclusion and Recognition of Autistic People of All Ages and Abilities
Our intention is to let autistic and neurodiverse people know that they're valuable members of society, that they do belong somewhere & that they're never alone.We therefore use an upbeat & proactive approach via our website, blog & extensive social media platforms which helps raise self-esteem & self-confidence in autistic children & adults, their families & friends. Meanwhile, we work tirelessly behind the scenes supporting vulnerable autistic people & their families who are living in poverty, struggling with mental health problems, dealing with addictions or escaping domestic violence.Why the community needs us
We help the most desperate & vulnerable in our community as described above, & hold hugely popular inclusive events which bring people of all ages & abilities together in safe, welcoming environments. Our social media community & blog provide advice & information in a positive, upbeat way, & are backed up by online counselling & individual mentoring. We also offer local special needs families the much-needed opportunity to enjoy time with their loved ones at our free film & theatre clubs.Our impact on the community
Since we were founded in 2010 we've worked tirelessly to support autistic people & their loved ones. We've helped local families in crisis, enabled autistic adults receive a diagnosis, supported countless parents by giving them hope for their children's future, & offered a safe, welcoming environment both online & at our events, where everyone is truly accepted & empowered. We've shared countless smiles with those who need them most & with your help we plan to continue this long into the future.
We welcome volunteers to organise their own fundraisers for us, spread the word about us online and help us behind the scenes.
