Celebrating Differences promotional campaign

Celebrating differences - Supporting positive change for Autism and learning disabilities

In Staffordshire we want to recognise and celebrate where organisations and community venues have made positive changes to become more accessible and inclusive to autistic adults, and adults with learning disabilities.

This campaign is about sharing these stories and the places people have felt included and valued. We hope by doing this we will:

  • Raise awareness of Autism and learning disabilities
  • Help other organisations make positive changes
  • Increase the confidence of autistic people and people with learning disabilities to visit their local community more often.

A visual presentation about the campaign is available below:

The campaign will launch on Monday 13 June 2022 before Autistic Pride Day on the 18 June.

Nominations

If you have any places you would like to nominate to be included in the campaign, please send the name of the organisation, location and how they helped to: healthandcare@staffordshire.gov.uk, the closing date for nominations is Friday 24 June 2022. 

Take our survey

We also want to find out more about how Autistic people and people with learning disabilities feel and how they use their communities. To share your experience, please complete our survey.
