Why the National Autistic Society need your support

The organisation has come a long way in raising awareness about autism but there’s still more to be done. They need the public’s support to raise vital funds to continue running campaigns and influencing government decision making, training and sharing knowledge with professionals working with autistic people, and so much more – and that’s where you come in.
