Huddersfield Town is proud to be celebrating Autism Awareness Week and shine on a light on ways to help to those who need it through our Foundation and Inclusion Room.
Autism Awareness Week begins on Monday 27 March and lasts until Sunday 2 April 2023.
Huddersfield Town is proud to offer its support to those with autism through our Terriers Together Inclusion Room - with both initiatives supported by patrons Thornhill Dental - and the Huddersfield Town Foundation.
The Terriers Together Inclusion room gives people the opportunity to feel comfortable and welcome regardless of any background or characteristic. We recognise the important role we play within our communities and through our ‘Terriers Together’ equality, inclusion and diversity work, we hope to maintain a safe and comfortable environment which allows supporters to attend fixtures and engage with us knowing that discriminatory behaviour won’t be tolerated.

The Huddersfield Town foundation is also proud to offer people within the community a safe place where they can engage in physical exercise and education. The Foundation gives young people life-changing opportunities and plays an important part in the community.

There are also lots of charities local to Huddersfield which offer their support to people with autism.
HSGA (Huddersfield Support Group for Autism)
The HSGA (Huddersfield Support Group for Autism) was set up in 1992 and offers advice, support, trips and events amongst other things. The charity is a voluntary group of individuals or families living or working with autism. The HSGA has done important work throughout the community resulting in the setting up of provisions at Longley Special School and the formation of the Kirklees Autism Outreach Service.

The Whole Autism Family
The Whole Autism Family is a charity based in Dewsbury that like the HSGA helps support people and their families with autism. They offer support for families, whether or not a person has been diagnosed with autism. The charity offers events for people to attend, allowing families to meet others in the same situation and get the best help, support and advice they can.

Thriving Kirklees is a service, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is a team of people with a wealth of experience working with children and young people up to 18 years who have complex social and communication difficulties. Once a child has been added to their list, they will be assessed, helping them to identify what strengths and weaknesses they may have. Once diagnosed, support and help will be offered depending on what needs the child has.
