What will I need to do as an Ambassador?

The smallest of actions can make the biggest difference

Being an Ambassador provides the opportunity to make a difference to a person living with Autism and their families.

As an ambassador you will act as an agent for change through:

  • Being a positive voice for people with Autism
  • Raising an awareness of Autism amongst colleagues, friends and family
  • identifying and influencing reasonable adjustments that can be made to:
    • work processes and practices
    • the environment at work or in the community
    • how people engage and communicate with one another
  • Build knowledge and sharing of best practice through development of networks

...as well as many more creative ideas you will think of. For more ideas click here.

How to become an Autism Ambassador

You can become an Ambassador by attending one of our free training days.

Then complete an annual self-assessment of activity undertaken as an Ambassador.

That’s  it.  What you do and how you do it will be up to you. We will be here to support you along the way. Every small change will make a significant difference for people living with autism.
