Do you want to make a difference for a young person with autism? Would you enjoy supporting them to develop their independence and social skills? Are you able to commit 5 hours of your time each week? Meet Hannah I am a 13-year-old girl with autism and diabetes (Type 1) who enjoys adventure activities, climbing, horses, going to the cinema, shopping, music and food festivals. My autism means I sometimes lack confidence in social situations as I can struggle to pick up on social cues and being in noisy, crowded environments can be overwhelming for me. I was also diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last years and am getting used to managing my insulin outside of my usual routine at home. Eventually, my goals are to have my own hobbies that I can access independently in the community and build a group of friends outside of school that I can do things with. I have some friends in school and would like to feel more confident doing activities in the community....
