Collection boxes – donate your spare change

Collection boxes not only help to raise funds, they also create awareness of the important work that we do. Your small change can help make a huge difference.

Collections at home

Did you know that, the average household has over £1.61 down the back of the sofa or in their cars; and with around 26 million households in the UK that’s £40 million in lost loose change!

Why not request a collection box today and put your pennies to good use.

Join the Autism Plus Silver Appeal and place a collecting box in your home or on your desk - and you'll be amazed at how quickly your small change soon adds up!

You could charge family and friends a few pence to enter your home and enjoy a homemade bun and cup of tea or just have your box on standby for when you have extra loose change!
