Summary of activities

Autism West's mission is to deliver best-practice services to young Western Australians with autism to enable them to connect successfully with others and the world around them. Its vision is a community where individuals with autism are accepted, celebrated and supported. The direct service priority of the organisation is to provide strength-based social and community integration programs for teenagers and young adults with autism in Perth. We currently provide direct service to over 90 teenagers and adults weekly in 3 locations in Perth Metro, Mosman Park, Hilton and Marangaroo The current organisational structure in Autism West is traditional in nature with a highly experienced board providing governance and strategy, a CEO providing daily leadership and management, and a small team of focused and skilled individuals. Sub-committees, which report to the CEO and Board, have been established and have oversight of finance, risk, marketing, services and development. There is Board and organisational experience in representing and working with all aspects of the autism community. In 2016 we experienced continued growth in the number of participants utilising our services directly, and an increase in membership by 35% to 842. Our social media presence has also gained significant momentum with Facebook, our most popular social media outlet, with a following of over 2,400. Autism West has developed key working relationships with stakeholders within the wider community. These include Telethon Kids Institute, which has worked with Autism West on an autism therapy app, Curtin University and the Cooperative Research Centre for Autism. In addition, we have extended our special interest projects to other mediums including visual arts, public speaking, digital media, music and technology to enable participants to develop their skills and interests and to encourage their empowerment and recognition of their own value in the community.
