World Autism Awareness Week


Bracknell Forest Council and Autism Berkshire are launching an exciting programme of activities to raise awareness of autism during world autism awareness week.

It runs from Monday, 27 March to Sunday, 2 April, 2017 and includes a variety of exciting events such as deep relaxation sessions for carers, a day out to visit Microsoft’s X-box laboratories and a family BBQ and farm visit.

The programme has been designed to celebrate autism with everyone in the community including people with autism, parents, carers, practitioners. Everyone is welcome to take part.

Cllr Dale Birch, executive member for adult services, health and housing said

Bracknell Forest Council is committed to improving outcomes for adults with autism and their carers. We are working hard to achieve the objectives set out in our joint commissioning strategy for adults with autism. Our community team for people with autistic spectrum disorder also works closely with other agencies to provide information and support to people with autism.

If you would like to find out how we can support you, please contact the team.
