I am supporting the National Autistic Society’s campaign to improve employment opportunities for young people with autism. The levels of employment among autistic people are low and with more support and information businesses could help employ more autistic people.
There are an average of 1,530 people of working age with autism in each local authority, of which National Autistic Society (NAS) research shows only 15% are in full-time employment and 9% are in part-time employment.
I would like to encourage local businesses to complete a survey to help the NAS to understand how to help businesses increase employment opportunities and have the confidence to support people with autism. The survey can be completed online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TB6YGHN
