    Positively Autistic: The Magazine Show

    in Lifestyle

    Greetings to all, and welcome to this week’s episode of Positively Autistic: The Magazine Show presented to you by Tracy Roberts and Joe Westlake. We will be live at 7pm BST, 2pm EST, 12-noon MST and 11am PST.


    This week on the show we will be talking to Jez Levinson and Joe Nash. They both run Uniting Friends, which is a charity project helping those with disabilities. It was set up in 1996 as a social inclusion project within the Borough of Essex to support adults with a learning disability to become more independent, more socially included and active in active role in defining and running their own provision. The project has a membership base of over 250 people with up to 85 using the service weekly. It employs over 22 staff and has 10 volunteers that support the project in a variety of ways including administration and service provision. The project actively promotes employment for people with disabilities and directly employs 6 members of staff with a learning disability.


    There is also a very important topic we will be talking about regarding autism coming up in the news and matters arising in the world. It’s about educating and reinstating to people that people with autism are not ‘animals who act violently or misbehaved’. We need to show the importance of promoting autism out there, across the world in the community and try to prevent autism in being seen in a bad light, but rather more, letting it be seen in a positive way and the endless potential those on the Autism Spectrum have.
