Ambitious about autism
Ambitious about Autism is running a campaign aimed at tackling loneliness among autistic young people. The charity’s youth patrons have created a series of ‘top tips’ outlining small changes in attitudes and behaviours that will help make autistic young people feel more included and accepted in different aspects of life.
The tips cover education, the workplace, youth groups and out and about in the community. The tips will be published weekly on the charity’s website where they can be downloaded and shared.
To request postcards of each set of tips, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or to support on social media follow @AmbitiousAutism #IncludeAutism
