World Autism Awareness Week 2018

General News

World Autism Awareness Week aims to draw attention to the people living with autism in the UK – to educate those unaware of the condition and to help make the world friendlier to those who are affected by it.

In the lead up to World Autism Day, the public are able to take part in World Autism Week which is covered across seven days where schools, workplaces and individuals can get involved and take part in different activities to help raise money for The National Autistic Society. This year Guy’s and St. Thomas’s  NHS foundation Trust are supporting the World Autism Awareness Week by hosting an Autism Road Show on Monday 26th March 2018 at St.Thomas' Hospital and Tuesday 27th March 2018 at Guy's Hospital.

There are many ways to get involved with Autism Awareness week such as fundraising guides which are packed with different ideas on how to raise money. Also you can even be involved in a night walk which is The National Autistic Society’s biggest walking event – at the end you will even receive a medal and a t-shirt for completing your walk!
