Our Impact Plan

We don't want to just raise money and do research, we want our work to have real impact on autistic people's lives. We know we can't do that alone. This is how we plan to work with others to increase our impact every day.

Our plan for impact is focused on our mission: long healthy, happy lives for every autistic person.

Why impact matters

Autistic people still face some of the poorest life chances of any group in society. Our work must translate into changes in policy, healthcare and awareness if we are to address these unacceptable statistics.

Our achievements so far

We've become the leading autism research charity in the UK, focusing on the needs of autistic people throughout their lives. Through consultations such as the James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership we are able to focus our work on community priorities.

We have set up the Discover network to ensure that autistic people and families are involved in everything we do. Discover links researchers throughout the UK with the community to ensure research can have maximum relevance and impact.
