Fundraising at Schools

Sponsored Silence

Can your school support us this Autism Awareness Month?

We are asking primary schools across Northern Ireland to take part in our Sponsored Silence challenge on 3rd April 2017 and discover the communication barriers that children with Autism face every day.

Get involved:

  • Every pupil in your school will have a chance to participate as teachers will assign a time on Monday 3rd April 2017 in which pupils must stay silent for one hour.
  • Each pupil will also receive a sponsor sheet (provided by Autism NI) where they can raise money and even have a chance to win Autism awareness merchandise for their fundraising efforts.
