About us

Autism Bristol are here to meet as a group or individually to promote the inclusion of individuals with Autism Spectrum Condition (also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger Syndrome) in competitive employment through awareness & training. We are also here to establish relationships with local support programs for ASC within Bristol and to develop partners to implement integrated employment programs for adults with ASC. We aim to give employment support for people with ASC and to help employers create a more inclusive workplace environment for existing employees and new starters with ASC and we aim to bring together employers and vocational support to successfully recruit and integrate adults with the Condition. As it stands, the website consists of two individuals, Alex and Mo. We both have diagnoses of Autism. We have both been and are still in employment and have over 27 year’s experience living with the condition.


Inclusion is the key to interdependency

We offer personal support and asses each individual’s requirements.
