Raising Autism Awareness

This National Autism Awareness Week (27 March - 2 April 2017), people around the UK are working to improve the general public's understanding of Autism. Around 700,000 people in the UK are on the autism spectrum. Together with their families, this means Autism is a part of daily life for 2.8 million people. 

What is Autism?

At Newcross we work closely with our support staff to equip them with the skills needed to improve the lives of people living with autism. Our highly-skilled Clinical Training department will soon be rolling out their new ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) course, if you would like to register your interest in this course please contact your local branch.

In the meantime if you would like to learn more and even get involved you can find more information here.
