We are keen to work in partnership with researchers carrying out research or applying for funding. We want to share our expertise to improve the quality of research and involve autistic people 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 to an external funding institution, Autistica can help in lots of ways, some examples include:

  • Facilitating the involvement of autistic people and their families throughout the research process 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 research study by sending an Autistica Evidence Update to our members or by running a Autistica Lecture
  • Policy professionals can support the translation of research findings into policy recommendations
  • Communications professionals can advise on a communication strategy for your research
