Celebrating 50 years of supporting autistic people

Celebrating 50 years of supporting autistic people

50 years ago a group of parents realised that there was no specialist provision for their autistic children. Two sets of parents with newly diagnosed children setup up the Essex Society for Autistic Children in Colchester and in Norfolk, five families in a similar situation formed the Norwich and Norfolk Society for Autistic Children.

After just four years of fundraising, Doucecroft School had been established near Colchester and subsequently new adult services were opened as their children grew.

Thanks to these pioneering group of parents, and the merger of the two charities in 2008, Autism Anglia is now the leading provider of autism services in East Anglia.

We have lots of exciting events planned for the year, including a Mud Run, a corporate £50 challenge and a glamourous Black Tie Ball to name a few.  We would love to hear from you so please do get in touch!
