COVID-19 is putting more demand on our support services while impacting our fundraising activities.
At this difficult time, donations are, as always, essential to the much needed funding of our Autism Advice Line. Our Autism Support Team are working very hard to create these informative resources to support autistic people and their families through this uncertain time, while also responding to all enquiries to the Autism Advice Line as quickly as possible.
We would be very grateful if you would make a donation to support this vital service and help us reach more autistic people and their families when they need it most!
