The Axcis/National Autistic Society partnership

Axcis has been in partnership with the National Autistic Society since 2011. Since the start of this relationship we have worked together on a range of initiatives, from developing free online webinars about autism, to live Twitter chats with top autism researchers and professionals as well as many training events, seminars, and conferences. Axcis also sponsors Autism Practice, the National Autistic Society’s vital online service created to bring autism professionals together across more than 12 professional sectors and from 90 countries. In 2015 the National Autistic Society also launched their “MyWorld” campaign (now Autism Practice, education) - with the support of Axcis Education - to enhance autism awareness, training, and resources in schools. Our partners have this to say about our relationship:

"We are very proud of our partnership with Axcis Education. They have, and continue to be one of our most valued and long-standing partners. To date, they have supported many of our activities. These include; our Schools Resources - which is shared during our flagship World Autism Awareness Week, Autism practice – education, newsletters distributed to professionals working with autistic people, and they continue to support autistic children through our schools and professional network. We are truly thankful to Axcis and their staff.”  Caroline Stevens, CEO


The Axcis/nasen partnership

The National Association of Special Educational Needs (nasen) is the UK’s leading organisation supporting those who work with or care for children and young people with special and additional educational needs and disabilities. Nasen supports all staff including SENCOs, leaders, teachers, governors and teaching assistants in meeting the needs of the pupils in schools and other settings through promoting education, training, and development.

Nasen also reaches a huge readership through their journals: British Journal of Special Education, Support for Learning, Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs and the magazine nasen Connect. 

Axcis has been supporting nasen for a number of years and our relationship has gone from strength to strength. From sponsoring key events and exhibitions to contributing to publications and the SEND Gateway, a valuable online resource for SEND professionals, Axcis is pleased to be affiliated with an organisation doing such great work. Our partners had this to say about the relationship:

“We are thrilled to announce the incredible winners of the 2021 nasen Awards. By spotlighting their hard work, inclusive best practice and sheer determination to achieve in spite of challenges, we hope to inspire others in the education and SEND sector. This past 18 months have been particularly challenging for us all, and have greatly impacted the educational experience of all children and young people. I would like to thank Axcis for sponsoring the award for the Learning Support Staff Member of the Year.” Annamarie Hassall MBE, CEO


Axcis Annual Charity


In addition to our long-standing charitable partnerships, we also select a charity each year to support with office fundraising activities. In 2022, our chosen charity is Dogs for Good. Dogs for Good is a charity which finds help and adventure for disabled children and their families through the support of furry friends. They do this by working with and helping to provide assistance dogs, community dogs and also family dogs across the UK. They help children and vulnerable adults with a range of disabilities to help promote independent living and have found that children on the autistic spectrum have responded particularly well. They have some useful video links and success stories available to find out more if you wish.
