Peer Support Groups
Autism Forward are funding places on two peer support groups run by our mentor partner, AS Mentoring. The Autistic Job Seekers Peer Support Group and the ND Self-Employed Peer Support Group meet online once a month to discuss relevant topics, hear from expert speakers and meet other people in similar circumstances.
If you would like further information on either group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Buckland Review of Autism Employment
Autism Forward were invited by the Legal Neurodiversity Network to participate in a roundtable for The Buckland Review of Autism Employment led by Sir Robert Buckland MP which is due to report its findings soon on issues including how employers can identify and better support autistic staff, what more could be done to prepare autistic people effectively for beginning or returning to a career, and working practices or initiatives to improve employment opportunities.
