We've been keeping this secret for a while, but we can finally tell you about that members of our youth council are leading a major new television documentary about autism, airing during World Autism Awareness Month.
Seven council members star in Channel 4’s Are You Autistic? bringing the views and experiences of young people with autism to a wide national audience.
The documentary is presented by Sam Ahern, 22 and Georgia Harper, 23, and also features Jack Whitfield, Jack Welch, Sadie Jaffey, Ollie Marchant and Georgia Ellin.
The youth council contacted Channel 4 while the documentary was in development to offer their views on its content. The programme makers then invited them to play a key role. We can't wait for you to see it.
So set record and save the date in your diaries -- 28 March, 10pm, Channel 4.
