World Autism Acceptance Week

We’re taking part in World Autism Acceptance Week during 4th to 8th April 2022, in conjunction with the national campaign being run by the National Autistic Society. To show our support towards raising autism awareness, you will see plenty of Blue pictures being shared on our social media pages during the week. 

We love for you to be involved, so please do send your photos and or contributions to our head office via e-mail: or via social media. 

Anything shared will be posted on our social media pages to really promote Autism awareness. The colour Blue is associated to autism and originated with the autism advocacy association known as Autism Speaks. Their “Light it Up Blue” campaign calls for people to wear Blue with the intention of bringing world-wide understanding of what an Autism diagnosis can mean.
