Right now, two thirds of autistic people do not get the support they need. That's over 300,000 people who are struggling to do things most people take for granted, like socialising, managing money or getting out and about. Not enough is being done to ensure that there are services available to help them.
This is unacceptable.
Ten years ago, the Government promised us that they would improve support for autistic people with the Autism Act. Ten years later and we're still fighting for better identification, services and care.
Currently, the Government is reviewing its national strategy for autism. This is our opportunity to push for progress. We want to make sure that the needs of autistic people are reflected in this strategy. We've arranged an event in Parliament where MPs can meet autistic people, their families and professionals to learn about the challenges they face and how a better autism strategy can transform their lives.
However, we need your help. We need lots of MPs to come to our event and learn about how they can change things for autistic people. We know that MPs are busy at the moment, but this can't wait - autism has to remain on the Government's agenda.
Will you help us by inviting your MP to our event? Join our #NotEnough campaign by filling in the form to send an email to your MP.
