Silly Sock Day 2022

Silly Sock Week is back!

Monday 28 March – Friday 1 April

During the week of March 28 – Autism Acceptance Week – we are asking everyone across the region to celebrate being different. By choosing a day during the week to wear your brightest and boldest socks, you can help us promote autism acceptance and raise invaluable funds to help your local autistic community.


The aim of #SillySockweek is simple:

  1. To get everyone in the East Midlands talking about autism

Whether at work, at school, at home, or as part of a group, take some time to consider people with autism. Do you understand what autism is? Is there anything you can do to make your environment at work or school more autism friendly? Our aim is to get everyone to stop and consider for one day what it is like to be on the autistic spectrum and take a step towards making a positive difference.

  1. To raise money to help autistic people in the East Midlands

By taking part and raising funds or donating this Silly Sock Week, you are helping autistic people across the East Midlands to dream bigger, live better and enjoy life more.

Put on your silly socks and let’s all celebrate being different.

Looking for some Silly Sock inspiration?


“Colourful socks and big engines don’t seem like a natural fit but being able to mix what we do every day with such a great cause just felt natural. It was great and a fun moment to share with our colleagues and see that we can work together in cutting edge technology and to try and change society for the better.”OJ Hemmings, Rolls Royce. 

“The DHL Bawtry Campus had fun promoting and taking part in the Silly Sock Day.  Autism East Midlands is a fantastic charity, carrying out good work around our region.” – Emma Wallhead, DHL.
