William: Uniting Friends is a great organisation which helps people to speak up when they can't and also helps those who are isolated and lonely.

Uniting Friends changes the public's attitude more positively to disability and autism. I have autism. Uniting Friends has helped me by teaching me new skills in the cafe training group. I'm hoping to achieve a qualification.

"Maybe someday I will be a chef as well as cook meals for friends. I want to reach my full potential and I know Uniting Friends will help me do this."

I've made some friends since coming here in April. Friendship is also about helping other people; it's about what you can give too.
