The National Autistic Society (NAS) is the UK's leading charity for people affected by autism. We were founded in 1962, by a group of parents who were passionate about ensuring a better future for their children. Today we have over 17,000 members, 80 branches and provide a wide range of advice, information, support and specialist services to 100,000 people each year. A local charity with a national presence, we campaign and lobby for lasting positive change for people affected by autism.
We deliver a range of services across the South West including residential services, schools, family support and information services, social and leisure opportunities and outreach and community projects. Our Cornwall Branch is run by parents and offers a wide range of local support and information to other parents and carers of children and adults with autism.
