We hit the road with our drive to acceptance in 2019 - but we’re not there yet! So this year – 2021 - we’re inviting you to join us on the Road to Acceptance.
As the region’s leading provider of services and support for children, young people and adults who are autistic or neurodivergent, part of our role is shaping the narrative on how people view and understand autism.
In past years, in line with our own corporate colours, we’ve asked local authorities, businesses and key locations to illuminate their buildings / landmarks in blue for autism awareness but we’ve long since stepped away from that, adopting GOLD instead.
Our amazing region keeps getting behind us – and the message of autism acceptance went further than our wildest dreams. People all over the world joined in, schools as far away as Australia signed up, London Underground signs were adorned with our words and prominent politicians even shared our campaign to millions of his followers.
So this year – even if we are still in lockdown – you can join us on the Road to Acceptance.
