Autistic UK believes that carers, family members, friends, and supporters of autistic people play an important role in both our everyday lives and as allies in the fight for our rights. It welcomes these non-autistic people as network associates.
Between then our directors sit on many boards advisory groups and strategic panels ,we all attend as many events as we can.. Attendance at consultation and participation events to ensure that there is Autistic representation. These range from big conferences to small local events
Here in Wales involvement and participation are welcomed by Welsh Government and the National Autism Team, we just need to see that level of co-production across all services. Autistic people do not live in a bubble and therefore we cannot just concentrate on perfecting autism services we need to see a much wider culture change to really make a difference,
