Community

Here are some examples of community focused projects and services that could aid autistic individuals in accessing and curating a community feels safe to them.

Some of the charities/organisations are local to Norfolk, but as I learn of similar initiatives in other areas of the country they will be added to the list. 

  • The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower acts as a prompt for someone to choose to let people around them know they have a non-visible disability and that they may need a helping hand, understanding, or simply more time.

  • Care Farms use farming and nature to benefit people, including improving mental health and wellbeing and offering a sense of community to disabled or vulnerable people.

  • NeuroClastic are a collective of Autistic people responsive to the evolving needs and trajectory of the Autistic community. By publishing autistic voices, they are cataloguing the intersectional experiences, insights, knowledge, talents, and creative pursuits of Autistics.

  • ASD Helping Hands offer guidance, practical advice and support to anyone affected by autism in Norfolk.

  • PDA Society  provide information, support and training about PDA for individuals, families and professionals, aiming to improve outcomes for individuals and families by focusing everyone involved.

 

  • Autism Anglia provides care and support to autistic children, adults, and their families in East Anglia.

 

  • Equal Lives are a user led disability rights organisation based in Norfolk and Suffolk, aiming to support people who face disabling barriers.

Do you know of any services or resources that could support someone in community spaces?
