Peat NI

Why support us?

We are the Northern Ireland charity for people with an autism spectrum disorder and their families providing practical evidence-based intervention by appropriately qualified professionals.

We want individuals with autism to get the support, education and training they need; be part of their community and of society; be understood by the professionals who support them and live as independently as possible.

Your support regardless of the amount, will enable PEAT to enhance family services and support programmes for individuals with autism.

Different fundraising options include:


-Charity of the Year (We’d love to be yours)
