What does your money do?

  • £50 could help worried parents to get advice and information from one of our Helpline Advisers following their child’s diagnosis
  • £100 could help people attend one of our adult social groups, where they can learn social skills and make friends
  • £200 can help us to keep campaigning across the UK to make sure that more people understand. Through understanding, more autistic people will be able to lead the life they choose.
