Research Autism selected as charity of the year by equities broker

Date: 6 August 2012

Research Autism has been selected as a charity of the year by the European equities broker, Redburn. Redburn is Europe's largest independent equities broker and provides research to its pan-European client base.

The partnership with Redburn will help Research Autism strengthen and develop its information activities, most notably through increasing our online presence and reach, thus enabling critical information about autism to reach a wider number of people.

Information dissemination is a central aspect of the charity's work. Over a relatively short period of time, Research Autism has established a robust reputation for providing trusted and independent information via its website to the autism community about autism treatments, approaches and therapies. Specific autism issues are also explored in depth through Research Autism's conference programme. The next conference Difference or Disorder?: the autistic experience of school and beyond , takes place on 14 November in London.

Support from Redburn will enable Research Autism to expand its information service through: the development of its social media activities; developing a series of online autism workshops; and further professionalising its conference capabilities.

Deepa Korea Chief Executive of Research Autism said:

"We are delighted to have been selected as a charity of the year by Redburn. We are looking forward to working with the company and its staff over the coming year on various initiatives. Their support and enthusiasm this early into the partnership has been truly fantastic! Redburn's support will make a real and tangible difference to the lives of people with autism throughout the UK."

Charlie Bridge, Managing Partner of Redburn commented:

"Redburn is delighted to support Research Autism as one of our charities for this year. We hope our contribution can make a difference and we look forward to working with them."
