We are the UK’s national autism research charity. We focus on giving autistic people the opportunity to live long, happy, healthy lives. We do this by funding research, shaping policy and working with autistic people to understand their needs. With your help we can make more of a difference.

We know that every autistic person is different. And we know that autism comes with both strengths and challenges.

But there’s lots we don’t know.

Research is the best way to improve understanding, find new ways to support people and families, and change lives for the better.

We are making more of a difference by

  • Funding, shaping and growing research across the UK
  • Developing new therapies
  • Campaigning for better services and shaping national policy
  • Sharing evidence-based tools, resources and information
