The safety of our supporters, employees, and the people we aim to serve, is always at the forefront of our planning. This year it's looking likely that we will celebrate Autism Acceptance Week under some form of restrictions, amid the coronavirus pandemic....
But this won’t mean you miss out on the opportunity to partner with an amazing North-east charity and support our campaign as you 'Join us on the Road to Acceptance'.
We’re launching our first-ever virtual Walk for Autism Acceptance on Friday, 2nd April (as part of Autism Acceptance Week).
It may be different, but our message remains the same.
Now more than ever we need your support. Join us and help make a real difference.

How to sign up

To take part, it costs just £5 per adult and under-18s go free. 

Your registration fee includes:

  • An activity booklet with fun ideas for your family to do on your walk
  • Entry into our draw to win a luxury Easter Hamper
  • A finishers certificate
  • Support materials to share on social media to let everyone know you're partnering with us!

How does it work

  1. Register for our Walk
  2. Set up a Just Giving page for your walk or ask your friends and family to make a donation here
  3. Take part on Autism Acceptance Day 2nd April (or a day that suits you) 
  4. Fill in your activity booklet as you walk
  5. Take some photos and videos of you out on your walk and share them on your own social media platforms and tag @NorthEastAutismSociety on Facebook, or @NEAutismSociety on Twitter and Instagram. Remember to use the hashtag #WalkforAutism 

Getting Started
