Join us and take part in 'Walk for Autism' a 1-mile walk at Herrington Country Park, as we celebrate World Autism Awareness Month.

Sign-up for the event costs just £5 for adults, with children aged 15 and under attending for FREE. This year we have added some extra fun elements, making a day out that the whole family can enjoy.

Registration will be open from 10am in front of the park’s amphitheatre. There will be signage when entering the park to direct you to the registration point.

Participants trudging along the fully-accessible route can look forward to background music from DJ Jordy, an Easter egg hunt, chocolate treats en route and a visit from our mascot, Pawsum the Panda, who will congratulate everyone taking part.

While the aim of this event is to raise awareness of autism and to sign post people to the life-changing work of NEAS, we do welcome others joining us. Why not use this event as your very own sponsored walk, splitting the funds raised between NEAS and your own charity/organisation?


If you would like to download the poster for Walk for Autism to display it somewhere to help advertise the event then please feel free to download it here

You can download a blank event poster here if you are holding your own toddle.

If after the walk you want to stay and enjoy the scenery why not bring along a picnic. We’ll also have a coffee van and food van near the registration point to grab yourself a hot drink and a snack before or after the walk.

We believe that by working together we can raise the profile and awareness of autism and promote the tremendous work of NEAS throughout the North East, improving the lives of families living with autism.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact our Fundraising Team by email or by phone on 0191 410 9974.
