Autism Gifts UK a new social enterprise, supported by Specialist Autism Services, has been launched. The new website sells a wide range of gifts for everyone and shopping with them supports people with autism.
The initiative has a range of aims as it grows: first and foremost all profits will be reinvested and used to fund the support of adults with autism across Yorkshire; secondly, as it expands (and gets busier!) it’s hoped opportunities to provide meaningful work experience opportunities for adults with autism will be created.
At some point the is aim to support individuals on the autistic spectrum with self-employment, providing them a platform to exhibit and sell their work – whether that’s their artwork, photography or writing.
