About this cause
Rugby Autism Network is a registered charity. We aim to enable families to enjoy more quality time together. We also raise funds to provide support in three key areas: to support parents and carers of those with autism spectrum disorder, to support children on the spectrum and their siblings, and to provide equipment they might need.
How this cause brings people in the community together
By using local public spaces, our project means that autistic children and young adults are not segregated. Open spaces are usually more "autism friendly" and, by being out in the community, local families can raise awareness of our cause. It improves the understanding of autism and how to interact with autistic people in the neighbourhood and beyond.
