Our corporate supporters are vital to help us continue making a positive difference to the lives of autistic individuals, and their families, across the region. Work with us to engage and inspire your staff and customers through a tailor-made package. We partner with organisations of all sizes.
Autism Acceptance Award

This award is for organisations committed to making a real difference for autistic and neurodiverse people. For any organisation embarking on this journey the outcome will not solely be an increased awareness and understanding of autism and/or neurodiversity but the further implementation of real-life, practical changes that make a positive difference to people’s lives.

The award is split into three distinct phases: BRONZE, SILVER and GOLD. We would encourage you to work towards each of the three phases, but realise for some organisations this may not be possible.
