Over 700,000 people in the UK live with autism. Add their families to that number and we can begin to see that autism touches a huge number of people, whether in your family, amongst friends or in the workplace. Wirral and Liverpool based Lavoro Care support Autism Awareness and are keen to help The National Autistic Society increase people’s awareness of autism, not only in the home, but in the workplace too.
Lavoro Care, based in Wirral, supply trained Support Workers to Adult Care Services across the region. Their Support Workers regularly encounter autism and are fully supportive of the campaign to make more people understand, learn about the challenges, features, characteristics, reality and to more readily accept those living with autism.
The National Autistic Society have launched a “Too Much Information” campaign which was created to help everyone understand autism. Some key points they highlight are:
- 99% of the public have heard of autism
- Only 16% of autistic people feel that the public understands them
- 50% of autistic people feel unable to leave the house
- 28% of autistic people have been asked to leave a public place
Do you have experience of working with ASD? Are you looking for a more rewarding career? There is a shortage of trained Support Workers and Lavoro Care are looking to recruit new Workers across, Wirral, Liverpool, Merseyside, Cheshire, Warrington, Wrexham, North Wales and across the North West.
