Be Awesome for Autism!

April 1 - April 30

April is coming!

Please support us and join in where you can. There is something for everyone.

Different shoes

Throughout the month, we are asking offices, workplaces and schools to hold fundraising events to raise money and awareness for Autism Jersey. A simple way to support us is to have dress-down Fridays. Encourage a theme – this year we would love you to wear different shoes. Whether it’s a croc and a stiletto, a Wellington boot and a flip-flop, or just a trainer and a brogue, we hope to see some wonderful combinations.

This will draw attention to sensory issues and how wearing two different shoes can make you feel a bit awkward as you go about your daily life.

Please do send us pictures, and let us know beforehand if you intend to do this, particularly if you would like some publicity in the media.


Friday 31 March  

Come and see us at our information stand in town, outside Jack Wills, from 1 to 3 pm. Tickets for the Duck Race will be on sale.
