Online community for parents and carers
Being connected with others is vital. Because without the right support, at the right time, there can be longstanding consequences on the quality of life of parents and carers of autistic children and young people.
You need access to a safe place where you can speak with like-minded people about your parenting journey without judgement, as well as accessing support, information and news.
So, if you need to talk, join Talk about Autism – the online community for parents and carers.
"Talk about Autism is very easy to use and is ideal for me right now as my son begins his journey to getting an autism diagnosis."

We have a rapidly growing online Ambitious Youth Network to enable more autistic young people to have their voices heard. Through the network, autistic young people between the ages of 16 to 25 can share experiences, connect with others, have their say on Ambitious about Autism’s projects as well as access a range of opportunities to advocate and improve services for autistic young people.
Your young person can join the Ambitious Youth Network, where they can meet other autistic young people, sign up to peer support sessions, and keep up to date with any new and exciting opportunities with us.
