About this project

The service is for young autistic people aged 12 – 25 and their parents / carers.

It will support people who are on the autism pathway or have just received a diagnosis of autism to understand the condition, develop their own coping strategies, and build a peer support network.

We want every autistic individual to be able to live their best life with the right support to do this.

How will it work?

Support Webinars

Weekly webinars hosted by young autistic people and parents / carers where you can discuss your own experiences and build a peer-support network.

Online learning content

An engaging website with videos and articles from young autistic people, parents / carers, and autism experts. Offering advice, information, tips, and support.

Community driven

Designed in partnership with people with lived experience. It’s your experiences and needs that matter so we are working hard to offer you things you will find helpful.
