World Autism Awareness Week is an internationally recognised week which will be starting on the 29th March to the 4th April 2021. The week is centred around World Autism Awareness Day which is on Friday 2nd April, but schools and employers are encouraged to celebrate the whole week.

During the full seven days, people across the UK will take part in activities to raise money and awareness of autism.
