WAAD March 30th 2023 - A date for your diary

20 Mar 2023,

AWARE World Autism Acceptance Day 2023

AWARE World Autism Acceptance Day 2023

AWARE will be holding a World Autism Acceptance Event (WAAD) at Bradford City on Thursday 30th March from 10am-2pm

WAAD is a drop-in event (ticket required) for families with autistic children or young people (NO diagnosis required!) and is an unmissable chance to meet a whole host of services including, but not limited to, education and health care, speech and language, social care, sports and activity clubs and much, much more!

You can attend the event any time that suits you between 10am and 1.30pm (the event closes at 2pm). You are more than welcome to bring children with you - we are planning to have a sensory/chillout room that they can access if needed.

We have Urdu and Bengali speakers available. There is free parking available on site and the surrounding roads.
