We Need Your Help!

Autism is a lifelong condition. An estimated 1 in every 70 people in Australia is on the autism spectrum. Along with their family members, this means autism is a part of daily life for over a million Australians. It is likely you know someone – a family member, friend or colleague. 

By taking part in Walk for autism, you will help provide the best opportunities for people of all ages on the autism spectrum from tailored educational support to fulfilling work lives and improved social environments.

Your support is helping us work with individuals 

  • Reach over 18,000 people in communities across Australia
  • Tailor our programs and services to meet the unique needs of people on the autism spectrum
  • Support children growing up on the spectrum to develop life-changing skills
  • Empower adults to build independence and achieve their goals
  • Continue ground-breaking research that leads to innovation, improved services and more opportunities for people on the autism spectrum.

Your support is helping us work in the community 

Public spaces and community activities can sometimes be overwhelming for people on the spectrum, making social outings a challenge.

By taking part in Walk for autism, you will help us continue to reach out to the community to help employers, businesses and public attractions become autism-friendly, allowing people on the spectrum to participate fully in everyday life, and feel included. Simple adjustments can transform the world for people on the autism spectrum.

I'm walking for....

I’ve stepped up to Walk for autism to help create a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind. 

I’ll be challenging myself to walk 10,000 steps a day for 8 days while raising much needed funds to support people on the autism spectrum.

 An estimated 1 in every 70 people is on the spectrum. Along with their family members, this means autism is a part of daily life for over a million Australians.

People on the spectrum see, hear, feel and experience the world differently. For many, simply coping with the everyday can lead to confusion, anxiety and isolation.

By coming together and taking action, we can help provide opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them.
