Across the globe thousands of iconic landmarks and buildings join the hundreds of thousands of homes and communities around the world to “light it blue” in support of people living with autism. In celebration of this week Autism East Midlands have created an additional range of autism-friendly events and educational activities that have taken place all week, and will continue through April to increase understanding and acceptance and further support people with autism across the East Midlands.

World Autism Awareness Day is on Sunday April 2nd 2017 and Autism Awareness Month continues throughout April. We have invited local companies and organizations to show their support for Autism East Midlands and Autism Awareness Week by lighting it up blue!
