Forging the path to Autism Awareness
Anna Kennedy Online may be a small charity and but the charity does big things and is made up mostly of volunteers who combine the ethos and integrity of the founder Dr Anna Kennedy OBE who is passionate about helping society and raising Autism Awareness across the globe by making a difference and by caring about individuals. Anna Kennedy Online have built contacts in the community and reaching out to families, bringing together groups of people and enticing the communities to take part and get involved in what we do, from community days, Zumbathons, Flashmobs to empowering individuals with workshops and also collaborating with a large range of companies and charities to raise Autism Awareness within mainstream.
