Ambitious About Autism

We know many autistic young people face challenges trying to enter employment. Ambitious about Autism has launched a survey to gather more evidence and data about young people’s experiences of looking for work and employment – in areas such as job applications, interviews and careers advice. 

Click here to complete our survey. It takes around 10 minutes and those who take part will be entered into a draw to win a £50 shopping voucher. Any autistic young person aged over 16 can take part, or parents, carers, relatives or autism professionals can complete it on a young person’s behalf. 

We’d be very grateful if you could share our survey within your networks so that we can gather as much evidence and possible to target our support as we move forward.
