National Autistic Society
About the National Autistic Society
We are the leading UK charity for people with autism (including Asperger syndrome) and their families. With the help of our members, supporters and volunteers we provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for people with autism.
Around 700,000 people in the UK have autism. Together with their families they make up around 2.8 million people whose lives are touched by autism every single day. From good times to challenging times, The National Autistic Society is there at every stage, to help transform the lives of everyone living with autism.
We are proud of the difference we make.
Mark Lever, the NAS Chief Executive, said:
“The National Autistic Society is very pleased to be part of the SEND Consortium, contributing our extensive experience running services and providing information and advice to children with autism and to their families and carers.
“The NAS wants a world where all people living with autism get to live the life they choose – and this is why we are part of the Consortium. SENDirect gives people affected by autism control, providing vital tools to ensure they can manage personal budgets and find the right services for them – and it will help in the development of future services and support.”
