Our Aston Avery has been awarded the UK Leaders List for Disability and Autism, because of his work as an autism and disability ambassador, with AnnaKennedyOnline and TeamAveryEssex.
I want to show the world that autism doesn’t mean it’s a show stopper and I intend to show the world having autism does not impair achieving. With the help of my parents I have raised more than £80,000 in fundraising and I am proud to say my name is Aston Avery I am autistic and I am proud.
Sarah Clarke, Campaigns Manager at Dimensions said:
“We’re incredibly proud to be celebrating Aston Avery, whose work is not only challenging perceptions but also inspiring others and showing the world that everyone can make a difference.
“Everyone can learn something from people with learning disabilities and autism. We hope people like Aston inspire change and demonstrate that we all play an important part – from individuals to decision makers – to make society more inclusive.
“We hope Aston inspires others and helps them realise that their ambition – however big or small, can make a real difference.”
