The Autism Forward team - Jane Pierce and Gemma Ballard - who took on the 100km Cotswold Way Challenge in the searing heat of June 2018 are back again to tackle another Ultra Event.  This year we will be covering the 106km coastal path around the Isle of Wight on 4 and 5 May 2019 and hope to beat out previous race position of 13th out of the 2 day challengers.

Please sponsor us generously to support our aim of of enabling more autistic adults to be included and valued in the workplace by funding specialist one-to-one mentoring to help autistic people find and maintain paid or voluntary employment. Currently around 70% of autistic people are unemployed - help us to change this!

Since April 2018 Autism Forward has provided annual mentoring grants for over 60 autistic people across the UK to help them find employment.  Over half our grant applicants have already secured paid or voluntary roles and many others have found placements, training opportunities or joined groups and clubs with the support of their mentors.  With your help we can provide support and opportunities for many more autistic job seekers in 2019.
