Campaigners hold up a sign that reads 'Until everybody understands #WAAW'.So many of you took part in World Autism Awareness Week (27 March – 2 April) and we cannot thank you enough! We heard of people dressing up in tremendous outfits, baking delicious cakes, running, walking, quizzing, collecting and spreading the word of WAAW far and wide so that friends, family, schools and colleagues could get involved too. The week has massively helped to increase understanding of autism and raised vital funds to support autistic people.

The running total stands at over £200,000 – and counting!

This is a huge achievement by everybody who took part and will help to fund ground breaking work, like our Too Much Information campaign, which is helping the public to understand autism, the person and what to do. Thank you so much for getting involved and helping us to support more autistic people.
