Autism Anglia has been chosen by the staff to fundraise for. The charity is close to home for Emma and we have helped support her and her son through difficult times. Speaking to Emma, she has praised our Advocacy Service who have supported over 2,000 families in the past year alone. Emma says 

“Autism Anglia is a charity I have chosen as they have been so supportive since my 8 year old son was diagnosed with ASD and ADHD age 4. Your Advocacy team are literally my knight in shining armour and have provided so much support, at times I don’t know how we would have got through without them.” 

Autism Anglia’s North East Essex Advocacy Service offers independent, impartial and confidential advice and support to families, carers, autistic children, and young people, age 0 -25 years, in Colchester and Tendring. 

This includes help to navigate both the clinical aspect of their care and non-clinical services such as general or individual advice about their condition and educational, social and financial support.  

They aim to enhance the life choices for the autistic and wider community in North East Essex through advocating on issues in education, diagnosis, welfare rights, housing, health and social care. 


NatWest are very community focused and, through Emma’s experiences, know about the challenges that can come with an autism diagnosis. Offering support to Emma, the managers and staff at NatWest know the importance of Autism Anglia’s work and we are delighted to have them fundraise for us throughout the year.  

These funds help us provide the best possible level of care to the people we support and anyone who fundraises makes a real difference to the lives of autistic people. 

NatWest are getting involved in our Silly Sock Day. Last year Silly Sock Day raised an amazing £4,000! During Autism Acceptance Week (27th March - 2nd April) we are asking you to join us in raising awareness and starting conversations about autism, whilst having fun and coming together to raise vital funds to support autistic people.  

Order your fundraising pack today and get your school, nursery, place of work, running club, scouts pack or choir, wearing their Silly Socks. The pack includes fundraising ideas, a poster, stickers to wear and a sponsorship form for you to make the most of day.
