The National Autistic Society
We are the leading UK charity for people with autism (including Asperger syndrome) and their families. We provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for people with autism. Our work relies on your support, so please get involved or donate today.
We now know that more than one in 100 people has autism – that’s around half a million people in the UK today. We also know that, alone, we can only reach and support a small proportion of these people and their families. That’s why we’ll not only continue to give people and their families the very best information and support possible, we’ll focus on making sure that everyone responsible for supporting people with autism has the knowledge, skills and resources they need to work more efficiently and effectively.
We will be responsive to the needs of all people with autism – wherever they are on the autism spectrum and whatever the particular economic, social and political circumstances of the UK nation they live in.
We want to inform, inspire and motivate. We want lasting change. Our work has given us the experience, expertise and determination to do this.
Together, we will have a much bigger and better impact on people’s lives.
