Autism Awareness week 2018 runs from the 26th March to the 2nd April.
This year to raise awareness we are asking you who is your autism hero? #AutismHeroes Is there a famous person on the autism spectrum that you admire? Maybe your big brother is on the autism spectrum and you love and respect him for a particular reason? Could it be your mum who isn’t on the spectrum but looks after your little sister who is? It could even be your employer who has made adjustments in the work place to accommodate you and your needs.
Whoever it is we want to hear from you.
We want to know who your autism hero is and why? We would love it if you would tell us about your autism hero and share a photo that we can use on our website and social media channels. Autism Heroes: Who’s yours?
You must make sure that your hero has given consent to share a photo of them self with us or we can’t use it.
We will need consent directly from them. Please let your hero know that you want to nominate them and ask them to email us a photo they are happy to use along with a state-ment saying: “I, (NAME) am the person in the attached photo and I give consent for it to be used by Autism Hampshire on their website and via their social media channels.” (Nominator Name) has nominated me as their autism hero and I am happy to have my photo shared in this campaign and on the Autism Hampshire website to raise awareness of autism and to support the charity.
Please email your hero nominations and photos with consent statements to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will then start sharing the stories and photos during Autism Awareness week and beyond. Please email us on the above address if you have any questions. Thank you
