There are more than half a million people in the UK living with autism, an invisible, misunderstood and lonely disability. 60,000 live in the West Midlands. We are the leading charity in the West Midlands for people affected by autism. We exist to enable all people with autism, and those who love and care for them to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives. Our passionate, expert staff and volunteers work across all age groups and abilities, providing direct support to people affected by autism.
This project aims:
To build a space online, separate from social netwroks such as Facebook and Twitter, where people affected by autism can share their lives, stories, hopes, questions, thoughts and advice. We also want it to be a place that empowers people with the tools to connect to others near them, and create their own, smaller, sustainable networks of support in their local area.
