London Autism Group Charity is delighted to have supported these two talented young autistic advocates on their social media journey:
My Autistic Sparkle
We can't wait to see their future videos and what they go on to achieve in the future.
Please check out their past social media activities and stayed tuned for the future ones!
If you wish to nominate someone living in or close to London, who may be in need of some support starting their advocacy journey, then please email us at: email@example.com. We are particularly keen to help younger autistic people.
Importantly, if you would like to support us so we can continue funding and supporting young autistic people, along with all the other work we do to support the autistic and wider autism community, then please consider giving a donation, no matter how small, or fundraising on our behalf. We very much appreciate it. You can do this by clicking the donate button at the top right of this page or going to our the fundraising page of this website.
During the current coronavirus crisis, we are creating a number of support services for the Autism Community. As part of this, we are looking for volunteers with a background in mental health. Please see our Volunteer page for further details and to apply. Many thanks!
There is also a new Community Resources page in the Useful Information section, where we will give updates on support services for covid19.
**Special upcoming mental health events during the Covid-19 crisis**
To support the Autism community's mental health during this coronavirus epidemic, the London Autism Group Charity have arranged several Q & A livestreams.
The next event is this Friday 31st of July at 21:00 GMT.
We will be speaking to a Speech and Language therapist from the wonderful Hennie Hub, and Melissa Coleman the CEO and founder.
This event will take place on the public
Facebook London Autism Group Charity page.
**Survey of parents and carers during Covid-19**
The London Autism Group Charity are proud to have supported a very important survey of parents and family carers' (of autistic children and young people) experiences during Covid-19.
The results from this collaborative research project have concluded that despite the relaxed legislation on lockdown measures for autistic people, a majority of people asked said that the needs of autistic people and their families were not adequately planned for, or addressed by officials during the pandemic.
A word from our Founder
A very warm welcome to the London Autism Group Charity.
The London Autism Group Charity aims to build on the work we have started with ‘London Autism Group’, our Facebook support group.
In this way we aim in the long-term to bring a wide range of targeted activities, to eventually offer help at every stage of an Autistic person's life and to carers.
Our dedicated team of trustees meet regularly to plan and help carry out the aims of the charity. Ideas are discussed and developed to fit into our long term plans. One of our major achievements to date is the creation of a popular and informative format: The Autism Podcast, where members of the team interview leading personalities, professionals and rights campaigners.
The Charity Committees
One of the main reasons for the founding of London Autism Group was the lack of support for Autistic people and their families. We aim to address this by setting up charity committees in different parts of London to help make our goals a reality.
