We are thrilled to announce that BBC Radio 2 presenter Ken Bruce is supporting our Radio 4 appeal this month. Listen out to hear Ken's story and reasons for supporting Autistica.
Ken's son Murray is eighteen, he was diagnosed with autism aged three. Ken is keen to help others understand the unique contribution that people like his son can make to society with the right support. By presenting our appeal, he hopes that Radio 4 listeners can make more of a difference to every autistic person by supporting research.
How can I listen?
The appeal has now been aired, but it will be repeated on BBC Radio 4 Thursday 21 January 2021 at 3:27pm.
You can also listen to the Autistica appeal on the BBC Appeal website.
"A gift of £30 would involve a family like mine in a research trial to test a new anxiety therapy to address fears of uncertainty. This research could lead to a new NHS service ensuring autistic people have access to better therapies and ultimately saving lives. Murray has proved to me that we should never limit our expectations of autistic people”. Ken Bruce.
