Campaigning with us

We know that it can be difficult for children with autism and their families to get the help they need and we want to change that.

We campaign to change policy and practice as we want it to make sure all children with autism can get the help they need to succeed at school and achieve their potential as young adults.

Families are the most powerful campaigners of all and we hope you will be inspired to get involved in our campaigning work. Below are some of the things we are working on.
