Special message from Dr Anna Kennedy OBE
“Together with my team we want to celebrate the unforgotten heroes that go the extra mile and make life changing steps that impact and improve the quality of life for autistic individuals and the lives of their families.
There will also be a Special Recognition Award which will be announced on the night. I look forward to meeting you and congratulations for being a finalist”

Special message from our Patron Kacey Ainsworth:
“So many people give so much time to help the lives of others. It is hard to choose winners because they are all so deserving. Looking past that, what I love is the creative ways in which the nominees choose to help those in their community – they use their minds in ways many neurotypicals can’t even think of! The Autism Community therefore has so much to give to society of large. Kacey x”

The celebration will be taking place at the prestigious Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, 22 Portman Square, Marylebone, London W1H 7BG on Saturday 13th October 2018.
