Welcome to Autistic Nottingham

We are founded and run by Autistic adults without intellectual disabilities, to bridge the gap in provision for Autistic adults who often find no appropriate services for their needs. Every member of our Executive & Trustee Boards has a diagnosed Autism Spectrum Condition, making us one of the only entirely “User Led” Autistic Charity’s in the UK.

Please take a look around our website at the services we offer and don’t hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions.

I was sectioned (under the mental health act) due to extreme Autistic burnout. When I came out of hospital I found Autistic Nottingham and began to learn more about myself and what it means to be Autistic. They run a great Peer Support session that's supported me to navigate a neurotypical world, and the Creative Expression sessions have given me a time to relax and enjoy activities once again.

Without the support of my Advocate, Louisa, I do not believe I would have progressed as much in my life as I have done. She has worked with me to ensure my University and Disabled Students Allowance paperwork was completed and submitted on time when it was all rather overwhelming for me. During the pandemic Autistic Nottingham also supported me with food deliveries and assistance in completing essential tasks.
