Save the Date: World Autism Awareness Week 29 March - 4 April 2021

World Autism Awareness Weekwill be back on 29 March-4 April 2021 and we'd love for you to join us to help raise much needed money and awareness.

You could sign up for our Super 7 Challenge, a flexible, virtual event which anyone can take part at anytime, anywhere or visit our website (  where we've listed lots of ideas for you to get involved in a safe and enjoyable way during these difficult times.

Did you know? Only 16% of autistic people are in full-time employment and this needs to change. With small adjustments and better understanding, it could be easier for autistic people to find employment, put their talents to good use and thrive in the workplace.

With your help we can make this happen!
