Autism ambassadors will be coming to Gants Hill to speak about living with the condition and what can be done to support people in Redbridge.
On Monday, November 26 at Redbridge Equalities and Community Council’s (RECC) general meeting, guest speakers Robert Lamb and Alex Rowley will be speaking about how despite many people being on the autistic spectrum, not much knowledge is known about the condition leading to institutions and individuals “failing to meet needs”.
An RECC spokesman said: “Raising awareness is so very important.
“Robert and Alex will tell us how the ambassadors started, what it means to be on the autistic spectrum, the problems that arise and raise awareness about the things that are helpful and unhelpful.
“We will also be having a speaker from the council for our regular slot about current consultations which are taking place in the borough.”
The meeting will be held in the new hall, Gants Hill United Reformed Church, Ethelbert Gardens at 7.30pm with refreshments from 7pm.
