Autism Hour 5th-12th October 2019
The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour is back! From 5-12 October 2019, businesses all over the UK will be taking the first steps to create an autism-friendly world and your support is vital to make sure this happens. Since Autism Hour began, we’ve seen over 17,000 businesses run over 40,000 Autism Hours and they’ve shown that Autism Hour is more than 60 minutes. It’s helping staff to understand autism, welcoming autistic people and their families to businesses and, most importantly, using their experience to make more permanent autism-friendly changes.Last year, over 11,000 businesses took part in our Autism Hour campaign, taking the first step in creating autism friendly communities all over the UK. Many businesses have seen the difference it makes and have continued to take action. Join them this October to see how you can make a world that works for autistic people. NAS Peterborough are hosting Fundraising events and we will be supporting business in our area during Autism Hour 2019 for infomation please see our events page and follow the link to the NAS Website where you can sign up to take part during Autism Hour 2019
