The Full Spectrum: Making London Autism Friendly

Autism is a hugely diverse and complex condition that affects thousands of people across London. It is currently estimated that there are around 88,000 autistic people living in London. A much wider group of people will live with, work with or come into contact with autistic people day in, day out, across London. Given that autism affects so many people in London, it should be vital to strive for an autism friendly city. An autism friendly city should be a place that is not only accessible for autistic people but enables them to lead fulfilling and independent lives. This will not only benefit autistic people and their families and carers, but will also benefit wider society, so that London can become a more inclusive and cohesive environment for those on the autism spectrum.
