There are 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK – if you include their families it affects 2.8 million people. It isn’t something that goes away it is incurable, but the right support at the right time can make a huge difference. Despite the large figure, it still remains a taboo subject. I have decided to do a charity night to raise money for the National Autistic Society, not only to help those on the spectrum but to help the family members. It is something that as a sibling, I have had to deal with on a day to day basis, and as much as it is rewarding it is often very challenging. Since my brother was diagnosed, I have researched and interviewed many other people in the same position as him or even me as a carer. I have found out that many of people have had all different situations even pensioners. The National Autistic Society is a charity I hold close to my heart, and I would love to be able to raise the money in order for them to support as many people as possible and make the world a better place for those with autism.
