The Autistic Womens Empowerment Project was founded in Jan 2014 .it seems so long ago now .Since then we have been connecting with women across the UK and have learnt so much
We are based in North Wales and have developed a local network of women who have a diagnosis or are waiting for a assessment of an Autism Spectrum or related neurodevelopmental condition or social and communication challenges and also the mothers of girls diagnosed or awaiting assessment .
As a network we are very aware of how difficult it can be to access a diagnosis and just how stressful the process can be and so have developed a network that can help support women and girls .We support each other as a community and are able to signpost to further support across the North Wales region .
This year we would like to also beginning growing our online network as our project is very focused on developing an online system of support by increasing our digital reach
We are asking for submissions of blogs or articles that will be of interest to our networks members .We are especially interested in pieces written by Autistic females here in the UK
Please also contact us if you would like us to place a link to your blog on our website
If you would like to submit a piece please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
