Why we need you
From an extensive survey of schools in the county, it has been discovered that there are over 2000 children with a diagnosis of autism, and many more accepted on to the Umbrella Pathway. We are still yet to discover the numbers but believe there to also be a significant number of adults with autism living in the county.
From talking to these adults, families and carers, we have been told about their struggles on a daily basis, and particularly their difficulties when leaving their homes. Many families feel isolated and alone, with no-one to talk to and no-one who understands.
With the county so geographically spread, we would like to ensure that there is a local presence, wherever they live.
