Lets Unite for Autism Limited
We are a happy, friendly, “Not-for-Profit” organisation where Autistic young people are encouraged and supported to learn and achieve.
We believe every child and young person with Autism should be able to live an ordinary life.
Lets Unite for Autism is an experience-led autism charity that is driven by the lived experiences of individuals who are on the autism spectrum, as well as their families and caregivers. The charity is founded and operated by people who have first-hand knowledge of the challenges, needs, and unique perspectives of the autism community.
The charity plays a vital role in advocating for better support, awareness, and understanding of autism by leveraging their personal experiences.
Key characteristics and benefits of experience-led autism charities:
- Direct Insight: The charity has a deep understanding of the day-to-day realities of living with autism. We use this insight to shape our initiatives, programs, and services.
- Personal Empowerment: We empower individuals with autism by providing them with leadership roles and opportunities to share their stories, fostering a sense of agency and pride.
- Advocacy: We advocate for policy changes, awareness campaigns, and improved services based on the first-hand experiences of individuals on the autism spectrum.
- Creating Inclusive Spaces: Our aim is to create inclusive environments that accommodate the diverse needs and preferences of individuals with autism.
- Breaking Stigmas: We work to challenge stigmas and stereotypes associated with autism, promoting a more accepting and inclusive society.
- Policy Change: By sharing our experiences, we aim to influence policies that improve the lives of individuals with autism and ensure their rights are protected.
Our Mission is to provide people with autism and developmental disabilities the best possible opportunities for lifetime assistance, support and training to help them reach their highest potential for independence, fulfilment and productivity.
