The shoes are off, and the vocal cords have been rested after two truly inspiring weekends at the Autism Shows in Birmingham and Manchester. Professionals and family members from across England and Wales gathered in numbers to network, seek advice and listen to experts in their field discuss the future of autism support.
Our team of experts met and spoke to some incredible people who share our passion for helping to give the best care and support possible. One of the takeaway conversations over the two weekends was the support available for transitioning from child to adult care. We have over 25 years of experience supporting young people and their families as they plan the transition from children’s to adult services, and we’re dedicated to making the process as smooth as possible.
Throughout the event, our team handed out our new employment guide and autism support guide, which went down a storm with professionals and families alike. If you haven’t seen them yet, follow the links at the bottom of this page to download your own version.
Over 150 family members and professionals left us their details to talk further about the ways in which we are able to support people to live their best lives and how we co-produce with Campaign 4 Change to help passionate and driven people with learning disabilities and/or autism shape the ways in which support is provided.
With over 200 hours of talks, we were delighted that our very own Director of Wellbeing, Strategy & Collaboration, Michael Fullerton, with Health & Sports Ambassador for Unity Stephen, got the opportunity to get on stage to deliver an excellent talk on Co-production & Kindness, a wonderful combination.
Stephen and Michael work together to focus on the health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities and autistic people. In their session, they talked about supporting people to flourish in their lives, with kindness, compassion and co-production at the heart of excellent support.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to come to our stand and speak to our team – we had a great time. Is it too soon to book our trains for next year?!
