Around 700,000 people in the UK may have autism – or more than 1 in 100 of the population. In Bedfordshire this equates to over 6,100 people with the condition, not to mention the considerable affects it has on surrounding family and loved ones.

Autism Bedfordshire is an independent charity, funded entirely by grants and donations. We rely on the generosity of individuals, companies and organisations to be able to run our vital services and support children, young people and adults with autism in Bedfordshire.
