The Autism Research Trust raises funds to exclusively support research conducted at the Autism Research Centre (ARC) at
The ARC is at the cutting edge of autism research. Under the leadership of Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, the ARC aims to
develop our understanding of the causes of autism and to evaluate interventions to ensure that people affected by autism
receive the best possible support.
Autism is a lifelong condition that affects 1 in 100 people. Together with their families, that’s over 2 million people in the
UK alone who are dealing with the effects of autism every day.
To benefit more people with autism we need you to get involved. With your help we aim to fund cutting edge research that will
influence understanding and services worldwide. The Autism Research Trust strongly believes that by investing in high
quality research we can make a difference to the lives of those affected by autism, both now and into future generations.
