Lockdown has been difficult for many people. But when we were in full lockdown across the UK things might have felt more certain, as the rules were more clear.

They also have advice for autistic people on going to the supermarket. Dare has produced information for employers to help them understand some of the difficulties autistic employees may experience returning back to work.
