What is World Autism Awareness Week? Each year, in the week leading up to World Autism Awareness Day, we encourage the public to take part in World Autism Awareness Week – a full seven days where schools, workplaces and individuals, their families and friends all over the UK take part in activities to raise money and awareness for autism. Not everyone understands autism and there’s still more to be done to help raise awareness. The National Autistic Society need the public’s support to raise vital funds to continue running campaigns, training and sharing knowledge with professionals working with autistic people, and so much more. How can I get involved? Sign up now and get your free fundraising guide from The National Autistic Society, it is jam-packed full of fun ideas and activities to help you raise money your way. Hold a fundraising cake sale, quiz or onesie day – the choice is yours! How about taking part in a Night Walk for Autism? The National Autistic Society are running walks in London, Manchester, Bristol and Glasgow on Saturday 17th March. Or you can join their brand new virtual event, 7k for 700k. Run it, bike it, swim or hike it! For just £12, you’ll receive a medal, fundraising and training tips and support on their social media groups. If you want to get your school involved, download their schools fundraising pack. When you sign up, you’ll receive downloadable lesson plans as well as other resources about autism.
