Weʼre raising £2,000 to improve well-being for autistic people in 2020.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them. This is your opportunity to directly help me in my endeavours to improve lives for other autistic people!
Autism Dialogue is now two years old and as we enter a new phase we need your help more than ever!
Our aim is to help improve quality of life for autistic people in a fully participatory way - by enabling a safe space to share experiences and understanding from as many perspectives as possible. Focussing on our strengths in a truthful but safe space, with other autistic people, family members, researchers and professionals, we can generate new knowledge and increase understanding together. The programme has been shown to directly reduce anxiety and improve well-being for autistic adults.
Autism Dialogue is an evolving practice that is guided only by us. So far through our dialogue programmes and conference and other events we have reached around 150 people. This method is the first of its kind anywhere in the world and we continue to receive messages of support from key national and local organisations.
All funds this round go towards monthly venue hire, a conference in November and related expenses. This round is timed to end just after the amazing Neurodiversity Celebration Week we are proud to be supporting.
We have no income other than donations and all work is currently voluntary.
Your donations are highly appreciated!
We are making Autism Dialogue into an official organisation, so there's some serious work ahead. But we can do it - with YOUR support.

About the fundraiser
I was diagnosed as autistic some years ago and am excited to have designed a method aimed directly at bringing all members of the autistic and autism communities together (autistic people, professionals, researchers and support networks included).
