Become an Autism Friend

Attend one of our free one-hour Autism Friends sessions (external link) and become an Autism Friend.

An Autism Friend is somebody that learns about autism so they can help change the stigma surrounding autism in their community.

These sessions aim to help businesses and members of the public better understand how those living with autism will encounter situations and what they can do to break down barriers. Sessions are held regularly across Wigan Borough and to date over 4000 people have attended.

Book a private session for your team

If you have large team or group of individuals, we can host a private session either in-person at your workplace, community centre or virtually from the comfort of your own home.

Volunteer with us

We’re looking for like-minded people who share our passion to support us with the Autism Friends campaign by either becoming an Autism Friends Champion or Lead to help promote the understanding and acceptance of autism
