Story

We nurture, enable and inspire families living with autism. We provide expert and caring support & advice, youth groups, and holiday activities.

We change lives.

Parents and young people say:

“When I’ve been crawling on the floor, you have always made me stand, take a breath and give me the courage to carry on”. – Parent

“You are the only person I feel has ever got me” - autistic teenager receiving mentoring.

"You speak my language" - young person

AFSO has something special – we call it “The AFSO Way” - we give families the time, care, and autism expertise they need, and have built an 'AFSO community'.

However, recently our funding has been substantially reduced and we urgently need to raise funds to continue our three youth groups and "lifeline" family support services to parents/carers.

Please be an AFSO angel

Demand for our support will continue - and we want to continue to meet the needs of our community - but we need your help to raise funds, now more than ever.

Every little helps.

Please donate what you can - and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to do the same. Together we could sustain this vital and cherished community service.

£10 could welcome a new family to our support.

£30 could provide a Summer Activity for a child.

£250 could provide an Online Q&A session.

£500 could allow a child to attend a youth group for one year.

£1,600 could fund one support worker for one youth group for a year.

£2,200 could provide a fun and safe venue for youth group for a year.

£12,000 could fund a youth group for a whole year.

£45,000 could fund a Family Practitioner and advice services for a year.
