It’s our birthday soon – Jubilee celebrations planned
With a year of Jubilee celebrations set to be launched in January 2017 we take a moment to look back at our history – and reflect on how our charity was first founded …
Autism Concern began in the early nineties, with a small group of parents of children with autism who met regularly to share their experiences and discuss the difficulties they experienced in trying to find suitable services for their children.
At this time, autism was not widely recognised or understood and so the parents decided that they would create a charity that provided services for children with autism – this is where Autism Concern (formerly known as the Northamptonshire Society for Autism (NSA) began.
Brian Dunne, Honorary Vice President of Autism Concern and a founding trustee, said: “The mission of Autism Concern is and has always been to promote the care, treatment and education of children and adults with autism and to secure for them provision that meets their needs. I am proud to have been involved in such a wonderful charity, that provides invaluable and much needed services to those affected by autism.”
