Autism Hour


Due to 64% of autistic individuals avoiding the shops, the NAS are campaigning for all businesses to run an autism hour. This is 60 minutes of reduced sensory stimulus (music, noise and lighting) and increased awarness of autism for both customers and staff! Find out how you and your workplace can contribute to a more autism-friendly world!




World Autism Awareness Week


Running up to World Autism Awarness Day, all around the world, schools, workplaces and individuals are holding activities to raise awareness of, and fundraise for, autism! From night walks and sponsored runs, to guides on how you can fundraise - lthere's so many ways you can get involved!





We can often be found fundraising in the Asda at West Rivergate Shopping Centre, but keep checking back to find out what new and exciting events we have planned!


If you would like to contribute to the NAS and everyone's efforts in raising awarness and campaigning, all donations are welcome and very much appreciated. Thank you!
