We work in partnership with researchers who are starting projects or applying for funding. We involve autistic people and share our expertise to ensure that your project can make more of a difference.

What we can offer

As a co-applicant or collaborator on your project application, we can help in lots of ways:

  • Facilitating the involvement of autistic people and their families throughout via our Insight Group
  • Supporting participant recruitment via the Autistica Network
  • Research professionals can provide guidance and input on the aims and design of your study
  • Disseminating the results of a study by sending an Autistica Evidence Update to our members
  • Policy professionals can support the translation of research findings into policy recommendations
  • Communications professionals can support sharing your results and host an expert webinar

Who we partner with

We are willing to work in partnership with autistic people, families, community organisations, research funders, charities, governments and industry if they can help contribute to 2030 Goals.

We are a small team making a big impact. Unfortunately, we can't partner with everyone who applies to work with us. We prioritise projects based on alignment with our 2030 Goals, community need and capacity.
