All about AWARE

AWARE is a parent-run group supporting families with children and young adults on the autistic spectrum (formal diagnosis not required).

The group covers the Airedale, Wharfedale, Bradford and Craven areas and beyond.

Members include families and supporters in general, as well as health, education and social care professionals.

Early diagnosis of autism can greatly improve the chances of a person receiving appropriate help.

AWARE can support families through the maze of local services which cross health, social care and education boundaries. We can advise them about about accessing appropriate support from statutory, voluntary and private services, which can make a huge difference to a person with autism, helping them to maximise their skills and achieve their full potential as an adult.

We also run a whole range of events and activities for children, young people and parents/carers. Please see our Events and Groups page for more information.

We welcome membership from all backgrounds – you can join AWARE here.

More than 500,000 families in Britain are affected by Autism

The current rate of autism in the UK is 1.1% so more than 1 in 100 people is autistic
