Supporting the voice
of Autistic people
Speakup for Autism
The group was started in 2012 to give a voice to autistic people. The group has a committee of 8 people who meet regularly to discuss and plan work which includes:
Work with the universities of Hallam, Sheffield and Manchester Met. Our experts work in co-production with researches from these universities to develop better services for autistic people.
They also have strong links with NAS and train other organisations, health care professionals and autistic people in how to communicate in a meaningful way with autistic people.
Self Advocacy projects which look at working and training professionals in communication skills and enabling them to support autistic people better.
Link with Healthcare professionals to plan and deliver projects aimed at improving the health and well-being of autistic people.
The group operates from a base within Speakup Self Advocacy in Rotherham and is supported by the Charity to meet its goals.
