Join us and fundraise this World Autism Acceptance Week!

We will be kicking things off on Tuesday 2 April 2024 (World Autism Awareness Day) right through to Monday 8 April. Our colour theme is back for 2024 and there are lots of different and creative ways to get involved.

Why get involved?

Autistic people face discrimination and barriers across all sectors of society – in the health and social care systems, in education, in employment, and everywhere in between. It is crucial that autistic people, and their families and carers, can access tailored information, guidance and support to overcome those barriers, along with opportunities to explore their interests, develop skills and build friendships for fulfilled lives.

Only 26% of autistic pupils feel happy at school
Only 29% of autistic people are in any form of employmentpy at school
70% of autistic people experience mental health problems
There are over 150,000 people on the waiting list for an autism assessment in the UK
