Thursday, 2 April 2015 is the eighth annual World Autism Awareness Day and the College is helping raise awareness of Autism with Autism East Midlands. As part of our on going fundraising efforts, Students and Staff are encouraged to wear something blue and donate £1 when they arrive in the morning.
If you would like to find out more about Autism and how it affects around 700,000* people in the UK please visit the Autism Speaks website.

This is our second fundraising event of the academic year with Children in Need Day being our first. You can find out more about our fundraising efforts on our Fundraising page.
* Currently, there is no register or exact count kept on the number of people in the UK with Autism. Any information about the possible number of people with autism is based on epidemiological surveys (ie studies of distinct and identifiable populations).
