'Pay What You Can' for Autistic People and their Families

What is Pay What You Can?

Pay What You Can is a pilot scheme that we have put in place to make the conference as accessible as possible to autistic people and their families. This scheme is not available to professionals.

How Does It Work?

You can choose how much you want to pay for attending the conference from £1+.

How do I know what to pay?

We're asking autistic people and their families to choose the price that is right for their circumstances. That might vary from person to person. This could be £1, £5, £10 or you may wish to pay more £20, £30, £40 or maybe towards the higher end of the scale £50 or £75+ it is entirely up to you.

What's the point in me paying more?

As a registered charity, all our events are priced to breakeven. Those that can pay more help us to reach this target whilst allowing us to keep the lower ticket pricing for people who need it.

I think I could afford to pay more, I just don't want to.

That's okay. We all make different kinds of decision about what we choose to spend our money on. We want you to attend the conference so our speakers can share their knowledge with you. If after the event you feel like you wish you had paid more then why not make a donation.

Won't People Take Advantage?

We really hope not! We want to make the conference as accessible to as many autistic people and their families as possible. This is a pilot scheme and if it goes well we will hope to roll this out over other events.

Why don't you just stick to ordinary pricing?

Our mission is enabling autistic people to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives therefore we believe that our events and knowledge sharing should be accessible to all autistic individuals and their families and that no one should be prohibited from attending for reasons of cost. As we will now be delivering our conference online we have decided to pilot the Pay What You Can pricing structure and hopefully it will prove successful.
