The Lincolnshire Autistic Society champions the rights and interests of autistic people. They work together with local support groups and statutory services to raise awareness of autism, improve what's available in Lincolnshire, provide advice to families and share up-to-date information. They also award a quality mark award to schools and services that make Reasonable Adjustments to support autistic people.
What we do
Since its inception, the Society has actively promoted the provision of care, well-being, education and employment for those with ASD as well as increasing public awareness and understanding to encourage acceptance and support in the wider community.
Through working with relevant organisations and statutory bodies the Society has been able to open a channel of communication, support and awareness between people with ASD and their families with Education, Health and Local Government.
The Society provides information, advice and support for adults, young people and children with ASD and signposts people towards other organisations and local support groups which can offer relevant expertise and advice.
The Society has close links with the National Autistic Society and has a voice locally on the Lincolnshire Autism Partnership Board and other decision making bodies. The Society continues its work to foster mutual support, co-operation and understanding to achieve the best possible outcomes and quality of life for those with ASD.
