According to the National Autism Society  there are only 22 % of autistic people  in employment in the UK and 1 in every 100 of the population are on the autism spectrum.

Do you actually know what this means?

We have the pleasure of inviting all civil servants to join our online Autism Awareness session, where you will have the opportunity to hear from Ross, Department Work and Pensions ( DWP ), who is expert by experience at  Radiant Research Consortium, who is  involved with research of Autism, and Karl, Welsh Government. Ross and Karl were first diagnosed in their early 50’s. 

Find out more about Ross and Karl, who join us to share their enlightening journeys. Showing how their attributes and challenges have given them a chance to raise awareness of autism, dissolve any barriers and prejudices, and to give everyone a fair and equal chance in their working life from support, through recruitment and research.

      I would be interested if there is a recorded session to access after the event. I only saw the session was being done after it had happened.

    I am unable to join this session due to prior commitments but would like to be made aware if there are any plans to repeat it or make the contents available afterwards.
