As part of ‘Autism Reimagined: Creative resources for schools and communities’ 2018, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council we have developed a ‘menu’ for local and community organisations who want to run their own Autistic Community Café, inspired by the popular ‘Dementia Cafes’ and the associated ‘Imagination Café’ that offer help and support to families and professionals dealing with dementia. The ‘Autistic Community’ is anyone autistic or in contact with autistic people, such as parents, relatives, neighbours and professionals. Our ‘menu’ offers a range of activities that foreground autistic advocacy and the voice of the autistic community, with advice on how to set activities up. The download (available shortly) is free, and we only ask in return that you give us feedback on your experience, as this is a pilot project funded by the AHRC.
We will ask you to provide feedback in the form below.
