People with autism need the Government to help them to find and stay in work. Without this, autistic people will continue to be left behind, their abilities overlooked.
We know how much they can contribute to the workplace – some of our employees are former clients and others have found success in sustaining work placements, sometimes succeeding in gaining paid employment!
The Government has launched a consultation to inform their plans for changes to the law about disability and work. The more people who tell them what support is needed for autistic people to get into and stay in work, the better chance we have.
You only have until 17 February 2017 to respond but we advise that you get your comments in as soon as you can.
