Our new three-year strategy will see us developing more services, focusing on raising awareness and understanding of autism, and continuing successfully to influence policy. We’re an ambitious and innovative organisation at a particularly exciting stage of growth and diversification.
Our current Chair will step down at the end of this year after two very successful terms, leading a strong and highly effective Board and working with a committed, high-performing executive team.
