The Sheffield Autistic Society is a local charity for autistic and asperger people and their families.
We provide support and information, and we campaign for a better world for autistic and asperger people in Sheffield- children, young persons and adults.
If you are the parent or carer of an autistic person, or if you have been diagnosed with autism / aspergers yourself, you are not alone. There are around 700,000 autistic people in the UK – that’s about 11 in every 1000. Sheffield has a population of about 577,000, so it is likely that there are at least 6,000 autistic people in Sheffield.
Welcome to our website
The aim of our website is to bring practical help to autistic and asperger people in Sheffield, and to their families and carers, through relevant and accessible information. We try regularly to update and add more information to the site – or to direct you to places where you can get more information. See our Useful Links and special pages on Education, Support Services, Housing, Employment and more. On the left of this page you’ll see links to pages about the Sheffield Autistic Society’s own activities and news.
