Autscape is a grass-roots organisation providing conference/retreat type events organised by and for autistic people. Autistic people have difficulty being understood and included in society. Every day is a struggle to get along and communicate on what are perpetually foreign terms in an often hostile environment. We rarely find a place where we can truly be ourselves amongst others who are fundamentally similar. Most are unemployed, lead a life of isolation and are excluded from social involvement in our communities. What's more, autism conferences are usually aimed at professionals and almost exclusively focus on impairments, treatments and cures. The environment and content of Autscape's events are centred around autistic peoples' needs, interests and sensitivities, which meets these pressing needs and is unique in the UK. For some, being able to attend an Autscape event is their first experience of meeting other autistic people or of a positive and accepting environment. However, due to their disability, the vast majority of autistic people are on low incomes and Autscape depends on donations in order to provide low cost events which autistic people can access.
