We are the major UK network of specialist autism charities.
Together, we support many thousands of people with autism, including more than 2,000 adults in residential homes, and thousands more through our outreach services. We run schools for children with autism, and we train our own staff as well as staff in the public and private sectors. We are on the Autism National Programme Board and are represented on the Advisory Group to the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Autism. Collectively, we have the largest concentration of practical autism expertise in the UK.
We passionately believe that people with autism should develop their full potential, and we believe that specialist autism knowledge and early specialist intervention are key to achieving this.
We welcome autism charities who wish to join us, and we are developing a programme to support smaller autism charities with information and advice.
