Autism-friendly actions

There are many actions your company can take to make the world more autism-friendly. Last year, we worked with more than 20 public venues and organisations to achieve this goal.

Thousands of people attended autism-friendly performances we supported, from Disney’s The Lion King and Ambassador Theatre Group’s Wicked, to Christmas pantomimes, War Horse and Matilda the Musical. In Scotland, we’ve been working with Glasgow IMAX to organise autism-friendly cinema sessions. 

We also supported the development of an ‘Easy Dressing’ school uniform collection by Marks and Spencer. This range aimed to reduce the impact of sensory sensitivities related to traditional school uniforms. As well as working with pupils from our Helen Allison School to develop the range, M&S also donated 10% from every item sold in the first year.

If you’d like to discuss what your company can do to make the world more autism-friendly, we’d love to hear from you.
