The ethos of the event is to get the conversation started between support networks, employers and the Neurodivergent community. There is a huge potential in the 700,000+ people in the UK who are on the Autism Spectrum, however, only 16% of autistic adults are estimated to be in full-time paid work, according to the National Autistic Society.
