This year, almost 5,000 people took part in World Autism Awareness Week, raising over £170,000 to help autistic people and their families across the UK. This is an incredible achievement by all who participated.

For World Autism Awareness Week 2017, we are asking you to raise money and awareness so that as many people as possible learn about the challenges, features and reality of autism. So we will quiz, bake, walk, collect… Until everyone understands.

My autistic daughter and I really enjoy organising a coffee morning every year in our local community. Holding these events has not only helped our community to understand autism more, but has also encouraged many to open up about their own issues and engage in a social environment.

We're overjoyed by having raised over £150 for World Autism Awareness Week 2016 – we look forward to raising more money and awareness this year!”
