National Autistic Society – Driving Change for Autistic People
The National Autistic society are gearing up for a pilot project to help remove barriers for autistic people and families who wish to use public transport and ultimately help reduce social isolation.
The project will involve offering training to transport providers in England, so they can help them develop a better understanding of autism and the often small adjustments that can help autistic passengers. It is one of 12 projects benefiting from a Department for Transport fund aimed at tackling loneliness. If it’s a success, they hope to be able to roll it out to more transport providers in the future.
