The objects of the organisation are
We run a self help information site and forum for autistic and neurodivergent adults and are currently running a mentoring into employment programme.
Our current priority is to build an online project management capability with with suitable functionality.
It is estimated that there are about 700,000 autistic people in UK. All autistic children grow up into adulthood, however the support for autistic adults is very limited. Existing support is targeted only at a fraction of people with most significant care needs, while the majority of more independent and better functioning adults struggle with all the challenges and barrier arising from their autism without any support. Being a minority of 1%. it is hard for autistic adults to achieve meaningful, real interest communities locally and we need a virtual meeting place at a national scale.
Only 16% of autistic people are employed
Autistic adults suffer from high suicide rate
Autistic people often have additional mental health problems, such as depression
We aim to harness the skills and insight into our condition of highly skilled, professional autistic adults and anyone who wants to volunteer for this cause in order to build an online peer two peer support community.
Shifting focus from seeing autistic people as being receivers of care and benefits and being primarily a cost to society, towards enabling de-stigmatisation and acceptance of autism, enabling autistic people to be in gainful employment, function independently and participate fully in all aspects of life as they choose.
We operate online and our address is a registered address.
