Our aim is simple: to support you and your family if you are living with autism
We have teamed up with the National Autistic Society to put together a specialised programme of support for ICE members and their families affected by autism. Support can begin pre-diagnosis, so if you suspect that you, or a close family member, is affected by the condition then get in touch with us.
The National Autistic Society can provide telephone advice to someone if they, or their partner or child, has not had a diagnosis but they are in the process of seeking one.
Following diagnosis there is a range of support on offer including a 10 year membership of the National Autistic Society and all the subsequent benefits this offers.
The opportunity to network and learn from peers is offered at support groups and National Autistic Society branches. There is also support available online and by telephone.
Information about education and entitlements is available, such as getting extra help in schools and how to challenge exclusions.
If you are interested in receiving a package of support from the National Autistic Society then please contact the Ben Fund directly.
This way, your support will be fully funded.
