Making the first autism-friendly town in the UK
Pioneering project aims to transform people’s lives
means that some people feel they can’t go out at all.
“Paulette is helping us to make Aylesbury more accessible for autistic people by increasing understanding of autism among businesses and services in the town.
“A little understanding and small changes to working practices could transform the lives of autistic people, allowing them to go to shops, hairdressers and pubs work in the way others take for granted.
“A number of different businesses are already involved but we want to work with even more and help them become autism friendly too.”
