Autism Rights

The Autism Act 2009 was voted for by Parliament to ensure that councils and the NHS provide the services autistic adults reasonably require. It makes a mockery of democracy when this is caused to mean so little at a local level because council and NHS bosses pocket enormous salaries whilst not adequately implementing this legislation:

It’s estimated that only around 15% of autistic adults are in full time work, yet autistic employees can be more effective than non-autistic staff.  If you are on the autistic spectrum and have been unreasonably refused benefits, and/or been discriminated against in employment matters, then we may be able to help.

Our specialism in autism has assisted many autistic adults and children get disability benefits and that is our main area.  Only rarely can we take on services or employment cases.  We prioritise benefits because autistic people are less likely to get any job, let alone a decent job, and without disability benefits there is severe poverty and associated health risks.
