As part of a wider advocacy charity, Leeds Autism AIM contributes to advocacy support available to autistic adults in Leeds. We can help make phone calls, fill in forms and give a voice to those who need it the most in times of crisis.

Advocacy is working with you to:

  • Listen to what you want and act on your behalf at all times
  • Think about what choices you have
  • Put forward your views so they are heard
  • Stand up for your rights and interests

Advocacy is free, independent and confidential. More information about what advocacy is can be found on The Advonet Group’s website here: What is Advocacy? – The Advonet Group
