Peer Support

The Autistic Collaboration Trust is formally committed to never charge Autistic individuals and their families for any services delivered.

Below is a growing index of Autistic peer support initiatives and Autistic community projects that are designed to progress the neurodiversity movement and to encourage the formation of new Autistic collaborations and NeurodiVentures. The Autistic Collaboration Trust actively coordinates several of these services and projects and refers to further aligned regional or local services and campaigns.
