Whatever size of grant you give, it will take us one step closer to ensuring all autistic people and their families live long, healthy, happy lives.

Autistic people are some of the most marginalised in society: in education, employment, quality of life and, most tragically, life expectancy.

Without research to find solutions, this cannot change.

Our Scientific Review Board only approves research with a high likelihood of significantly improving autistic people’s lives.

And because Autistica is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities, our academic partners can claim an additional 26p from the government for every £1 you give.

We are a small charity, with no regular government funding. You could support our general charitable purposes or a specific project. We welcome grants for more than one financial year.


Having supported Autistica for a number of years, we were very happy to recently award an unrestricted grant towards their invaluable work. We understand the importance of this kind of gift, which Autistica can use where the need is greatest.

We were delighted to support Autistica’s Incredible Years research project, to give children with autism the best possible start in life.
