World Autism Awareness April 2019
April is World Autism Awareness Month and we can’t wait to celebrate! Autism West Midlands will be working hard to raise awareness and vital funds during World Autism Awareness Day, Week and Month! We are hoping this year will be bigger and better and we really want you to be involved! We are asking all schools, colleges, businesses and individuals to work alongside us to ensure we raise vital funds in order to continue the work we do!
Silly Sock Day 2019
On Friday 5th April we are holding our annual Silly Sock Day as part of World Autism Awareness Week (1-7 April). On that day we ask you to wear your silliest, craziest, wackiest socks to school, work, or even challenge your friends and family to wear their most outrageous socks for a day at home, and donate to help us raise vital funds. Sign up below for your FREE fundraising pack.

Schools & Colleges – Win a chance to share your World Autism Awareness Day with Channel 4’s Autistic Gardener!
All Schools & Colleges who have signed-up and are based in the West Midlands area have the opportunity to be entered into a free draw to win a visit from our local gardening hero ‘The Autistic Gardener’.
Alan shot to fame when his channel 4 gardening documentary ‘The Autistic Gardener’ first aired in 2015. He was 15 when his love of gardening flourished. He puts it down to two things – a cactus he purchased from a local florist which he nurtured on his bedroom window sill and a seed catalogue. Since then he has won numerous awards at Chelsea, Hampton Court and Tatton Park.
So make sure you sign up today and receive a FREE pack including autism awareness classroom resources and everything you will need to get your Silly Sock Day into full swing!
Thank you for supporting your local autism charity, helping local autistic people and those who love and care for them!
