NW England

April 2 marks World Autism Awareness Day, and Bromborough-based Autism Together is asking people to continue learning and thinking about autism right throughout the month, also known as Autism Acceptance Month.

The charity is sharing free resources with schools, while encouraging people to hold their own events and fundraising challenges throughout April to help raise awareness and encourage acceptance for autistic people everywhere.

Richard Whitby, Autism Together’s CEO, said: “This April we are asking the community to come together and celebrate Autism Acceptance Month in their schools, workplaces, and communities.

“Throughout the month we’ll be sharing free resources to help increase understanding of autism and the everyday needs of autistic people, in order to build a society and culture that is truly accepting of the condition. . . .

So far, Autism Together has arranged an exciting Moonlight Trek on Wales’ highest mountain, along with the chance to take part in a charity sky dive.

Chloe Jones from Autism Together’s Fundraising team, said: “We’re encouraging people to arrange their own Get Active challenges, while getting sponsorship and helping raise money for our charity and the people we support. . . .

Autism Together is also offering schools the chance to be part of the month, through free teaching resources available to access via the charity’s website.

Chloe added: “These downloads are designed to help make learning about autism fun, engaging, and informative for both Primary and Secondary students. . . .
