Going for a coffee in town with a friend is the kind of thing we take for granted.
But Alex finds it really difficult – having to catch a bus to get there, getting there at the right time, being around strangers, flinching from the clatter from the machines, having to keep a conversation going, and maintaining eye contact.
Alex has autism.
We support people like Alex, helping them with daily challenges and life skills, like catching the bus and having a coffee.
We need your support to pay for vital services which help people with autism with their daily lives.
For just £10 a month, you could be an Awesome Friend and help us fund our essential work.
£10 per month is less than the price of a cappuccino each week*
To be an Awesome Friend of Autism Jersey, you need to donate a minimum of £10 a month by direct debit. In return, you will get free access to our lending library, an Autism Jersey badge, and some Autism Jersey merchandise.
*The price of a medium cappuccino in Costa, Bath Street, on 3 January 2017 was £2.65.
What your donation means
£10 a month could help someone take that first step away from isolation by attending one of our Adult Social Groups, where they can learn social skills and make friends.
