Birmingham Voices for Change: Autism Self Advocacy Programme

Are you or someone you know living with autism?

Do you have trouble advocating for your own needs?

POhWER is here to empower you!

Our six-week autism self-advocacy program is designed to empower individuals on the autism spectrum to take control of their own lives and speak up for themselves.

Our program includes:

  • Weekly workshops on understanding your rights, assertive communication, and self-advocacy strategies.
  • Group discussions and activities that provide a safe space for sharing experiences and learning from one another.
  • One-on-one coaching sessions that provide individualised support and guidance.
  • Access to additional resources and support services.

Our program is free, confidential and independent. It is open to Birmingham residents who are and on the autism spectrum.

The program is run by trained staff with experience working with autism, and will take place in Birmingham.
