About Us

Peter and Lisa have 2 children both of whom have a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Their youngest child was diagnosed first at the age of 6 and their eldest son was diagnosed approximately a year later at the age 12.

The Story of Autism Birmingham
Autism Birmingham was founded by Peter and Lisa Mace to raise the awareness of Autism throughout the Midlands and support Families living with Autistic children!

Understanding the challenges Families in similar positions will face, they set up a Community Interest Company to provide help and support. The sheer amount achieved since March 2013, highlights how tirelessly the organisation and its staff and volunteers have worked!

It cannot be stressed enough the importance of parents supporting each other through what can be very difficult and challenging times. Often, they receive calls from upset parents who feel at a loss and don’t know who to turn to and sometimes they just want assurances that everything is going to be okay.

A little bit of advice for anyone: "Be a friend" to the parent of the child with additional needs in the playground. Don’t cross over the road away from them, cross over the road to them and be supportive!

Together we can make the difference to the lives of children with Autism.

"I decided to volunteer with Autism Birmingham because I wanted to make a positive contribution to the lives of people who are affected by Autism."

"I am a voluntary worker at both Stirchley and Longbridge shops and also at a residential care home locally. I enjoy voluntary work as I find it very rewarding being able to help."
Lauren Breaker
"I like volunteering for Autism Birmingham as I have autism myself so the people I work with understand what it's like to have autism, know what it is or have kids with autism. I like having the support I get from everyone I work with. I have grown up being bullied and will do anything to help kids and adults with autism as they don't deserve to not live a normal life."
