World Autism Acceptance Week

World Autism Acceptance Week is back from 27 March to 2 April 2023!

Join The National Autistic Society for a colourful week of fundraising.

Their theme for 2023 is colour, and they have a new virtual challenge, the Spectrum Colour Challenge; a new in-person event, the Spectrum Colour Walks; and lots of ideas to get your fundraising off to a colourful start.

Check out their website for information about World Autism Acceptance Week 2023 and the work of the charity.

They aim to support the 700,000 autistic people in the UK. Every penny raised will support their ambitious plans to transform our society into one that truly works for autistic people.

If this is an issue for your family and you need additional support, please contact us to talk about what help is needed. To find your local Health Visiting team follow this link – Your Health Visiting Service – Sussex | Health for under5s

The service operates Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4.30pm in Brighton & Hove and Monday to Friday between 9am to 4.30pm in West Sussex, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a health visitor within 24 hours. Outside of the service working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the line reopens.
