Our Mission: Autism New Zealand is New Zealand’s pre-eminent provider of services and support for people on the Autism Spectrum and those who support them.
Our Vision: In Aotearoa New Zealand each member of the New Zealand community has informed choices to enable them to reach their desired potential.
Autism New Zealand’s Street Day is the most important public day we have in the year. This is the day we as a collective organisation stand on our streets and gracefully receive the generosity of New Zealanders who so want to gift donations in order for us to carry on the most important work we do in our communities.
