Corporate Colours Day for Autism NI

Corporate Colours Day for Autism NI

Celebrate World Autism Awareness Month with Autism NI, this April, by taking part in the charity’s new ‘Making Sense of Autism’ campaign and hold a ‘Corporate Colours Day’ in your work place.

In Northern Ireland, just 16% of Autistic adults are in full-time employment. Through this campaign, Autism NI is calling for all businesses to take positive steps to become more accessible for individuals with Autism – both as valued employees and customers.

Autism NI Corporate Fundraising Manager Sarah-Jayne Cassells said: “Embrace your corporate colour and stand-up for Autism. It is very simple, choose a day within the month of April and ask all staff to wear your corporate colour. This can be socks, a tie, scarf, shirt or go all out and dress head-to-toe in that colour and then donate to Autism NI.

“Our ‘Corporate Colours Day’ encourages employees to think about the Autism Spectrum and that all individuals are different just like the colour spectrum. Top local businesses Savills, Blush Boutique, Trust Ford and Lloyds Banking are all getting behind ‘Corporate Colours Day’ and my aim is to get as many different coloured businesses within Northern Ireland to take part.”

Autism NI is a local charity providing life-changing services for the 30,000 individuals living with Autism throughout Northern Ireland and they rely on your help to improve the lives of children and adults living with the daily challenges of this hidden disability.
