The National Autistic Society
The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for autistic people and their families, providing support to over 2,000 autistic adults in their residential, supported living, community care services. They also run social groups and employment support services for adults as well as specialist schools, autism centres in mainstream schools and further education support for children and young people. The charity challenges society's perceptions by campaigning nationally and working with businesses and policy-makers to change laws and deliver services that work better for autistic people.
With only 16% of autistic people are in full time employment, their flagship employment programme, Autism at Work, was launched in 2019 with the aim of closing the autism employment gap. Through the programme, employers are encouraged and supported to create paid roles for autistic job seekers and the resulting opportunities made accessible to autistic candidates. To find out more, please contact Enterprise.Team@nas.org.uk or visit their site https://www.autism.org.uk/professionals/employers.aspx

Founded by two disabled guys in 2011, Disability Horizons publishes articles on a wide variety of topics, all to support the aim of a world where disabled people live exactly as they choose to. All articles are sourced directly from its community of readers, and all team members are disabled, have a long-term health condition or a close connection with disability, making Disability Horizons a lifestyle publication about disabled people, for disabled people. At its heart, Disability Horizons aims to inform, entertain and connect disabled people together.
Having also seen how great products and services can make a real difference to disabled people’s lives, in January 2020 it launched an online shop selling a curated range of disability products that are innovative, stylish and truly valuable, all from trusted suppliers. All products sold have been selected through recommendations from its community of readers and based on the team's experiences over the years.
It also works with companies to help connect them with disabled people through its magazine, social media platforms and newsletter, to ultimately create fully inclusive services and products across all sectors.

That means supporting helping more women; people of colour; young people; people with disabilities; LGBTQI people; people with a diversity of lived experience; and so many others to become trustees.
