About the Charity
Our aim is to assist Autistic Adults who do not have an Intellectual Disability. You may know these people as having “Asperger’s Syndrome” or “High Functioning Autism”.
Unfortunately, there is still a lot of misinformation around Autism, where people wish to class it as a learning disability. Figures from the National Autistic Society show that it is almost a 50/50 split between Autistic people with an intellectual disability and those without. Despite these figures most services for Autistic Adults are tailored towards those who have a learning disability and require more in depth support/care.
We are here to listen to those who are lacking in appropriate services, to those who are on the Autism Spectrum and require support with things such as their career, further/higher education, social skills, relationships and much more.
Our team is entirely run by and for autistic people. We aim to spread awareness of what life on the Autism Spectrum is actually like!
You can find us on AutisticNottingham.org or facebook.com/autisticnottingham for more details on the services we provide.
