How Can You Help Us?

Autism Bucks is an independent registered charity working to improve the lives of autistic people and awareness of autism in the Buckinghamshire community.

Autism Bucks relies on the support of individuals, community groups, local businesses, and other organisations to fund our much-needed work. Your contribution really does make a difference:

  • £5 can fund a virtual members social meeting on-line
  • £50 can fund an actual members social meeting at a suitably calm venue
  • £100 can fund an inspirational guest speaker, as we have used for our recent awareness programme
  • £150 can fund an awareness campaign like the one we are running in Spring 2021, targeting 90 supermarkets within Buckinghamshire to improve understanding of autism and the experience of autistic shoppers

There are many ways in which you can help support us:
