Support Us – Fundraising and Communications at Autism SA
Autism SA aims to develop positive relationships with ‘passion and enthusiasm’ with individuals, families, community groups and corporate supporters within the South Australian community. As a non-for-profit organisation, we are partly funded by the government, but we rely heavily on your generous support to make up the funding shortfall.
As the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) continues to increase in South Australia, so to does the demand for our life enhancing services.
The services that we provide across the lifespan include: diagnostic services, early intervention, school support, spectrum advisory services and community services. Unfortunately, funding does not match the demand for our services.
We need your help so we can continue to provide services and support for people living with an ASD in South Australia.
