Autism Awareness Week 2016

Autism Awareness Week 2016 - Saturday 2 April to Friday 8 April

World Autism Awareness Week is back! There is no better time in the year to raise awareness about autism and make a difference to the lives of autistic people across the UK - so sign up and join in!

Our free packs are filled with amazing ideas to help raise awareness and funds during World Autism Awareness Week.

Our Night Walks for Autism were an amazing hit last year, and this year they are happening again, on Saturday 2 April in London and Manchester. You can sign up to take part today!

You can also visit one of our pop up shops, which will be appearing all around the country. They'll showcase the work of autistic artists as well as the winning designs from our clothing design competition. Find out more here!

A movement of people

Last year, almost 5,000 people took part in our first ever World Autism Awareness Week. It was our biggest ever fundraising campaign, and it raised over £235,395 to help autistic people and their families across the UK.

We need you more than ever this year, to help with our ambitious plans to raise awareness about autism, so that all autistic people are understood, appreciated and accepted.

Experience how amazing World Autism Awareness Week can be by watching our video from last year!

Whether you're at home with your family, in a school, at a branch, service or company, everyone is welcome to get involved and raise awareness about autism!

We have also launched our first ever Schools' Autism Awareness Week. Get your free fundraising resources, assemblies, lesson plans and activities to improve understanding of autism in your school.
