Hear Me, See Me

Our Hear Me, See Me campaign examines the inequalities in health care that impact autistic individuals and their families.

What are we doing?

Over the next 18 months we will be listening to the experiences of autistic adults, family members and carers from across the East of England, understanding where things can be improved and feeding back to the NHS.

How can I get involved?

Join us at one of our workshops! If you are an autistic adult living in the East of England we want to hear about your experiences. Our groups will be 2 hour sessions either on zoom or in person.

 

Why are we doing this?

We need things to change and this is why. Hear directly from our members and their families about their experiences below.
