We founded Autizma in 2015, to share good practice; we are Manchester parents/carers of children/family with autism, ADHD, mental health, complex needs and disability; this provides a unique perspective on the needs of people and enables us to deliver learning solutions from a real life, lived experience and skilled academic perspective.
100% of our staff/volunteers have lived experience of being involved by or through disability/autism/ADHD/complex needs and mental health.
Directors and staff have career experience which includes being a qualified social care manager, working in education, mental health, autism, ADHD sectors, commissioning, project management, administration and working in Manchester. Qualifications include child psychology, health and social care.
