AsIAm Is Ireland’s National Autism Charity. We are working to create a society in which every autistic person is empowered to reach their own personal potential and fully participate in society. We believe that by developing the capacity of the autism community and addressing the societal barriers to inclusion we can make Ireland the world’s most autism-friendly country.
AsIAm is working on a new project which aims to reach autistic people in rural communities so that they can have greater access to employment in their area. Autistic people have high rates of under or unemployment, even those with relevant qualification and training. Despite an openness to hiring autistic workers, many businesses lack an understanding of what is needed to make their business autism friendly.
AsIAm are keen to hear directly from the autistic community from both urban and rural areas, as this will be a both community-led and community-informed project. We appreciate you taking the time to help our new initiative! Please fill in your details at the end of the survey for a chance to win a €50 One For All Voucher.
