We campaign for the rights and recognition of autistic people, and believe that education and understanding of autism is the key to creating a more autism friendly society. We work with families, communities and businesses to encourage a better understanding of autism and are able to provide information, advice, bespoke training and consultancy. LAS have over 30 years of experience supporting adults with autism in a range of settings including residential, domiciliary, vocational and community based. Our charity wants to promote the idea that adults with autism can live fulfilled lives, and make a positive contribution to society. We believe that increased understanding of autism spectrum conditions is a major key to achieving this vision.
