Autisans supports people affected by autism, disability or at risk of social isolation. With your help, we can provide support to people of all ages to fulfil their potential by learning artisan, conservation and life skills which protect our heritage for the future and helps them become self sustainable.
A recent report by the UK Office for National Statistics revealed only 20% of people who are autistic gain employment. We aim to change this and help them gain skills which help them earn an income.
We envisage a future where their quality of life and prospects are improved supported by a structured and reliable framework where they can develop themselves and their skills at their own pace.
We seek to ensure no eligible applicant is prevented from attending skills training courses because of financial limitations.
Your generosity and support will help ensure there is access to learning for artisan and traditional skills which can be put to use preserving heritage for the future and allows people with special needs to be self sustainable.
We receive no statutory funding. Our organisation is sustained by private donations from a range of individual and charitable donors, sponsors and patrons.
How your donation supports our work
By making a one-off donation or a regular donation you are joining a community of like minded individuals all working together towards a better life for autistic people, their families, friends, carers and those with special needs.
The artisan, conservation and life skills they learn can help protect and conserve our heritage whilst enabling them to generate earned incomes.
Together we can make a huge difference. Give the gift of a brighter future. Make your donation today.
