A new national support group for UK police officers and staff affected by autism spectrum condition, Asperger syndrome and related "hidden disabilities" such as dyslexia - either personally or as carers for family members - has been set up.
The website is www.npaa.org.uk and Twitter account is "Police Autism UK" @npaa_uk
Officers, staff and support professionals can meet and offer mutual support on the private web forum - details on how to register on our website.
The NPAA also promotes best practices for police officers working with members of public affected by autism, and champions and publicises police action against hate crime, particularly disability hate crime.
For further info, please look on the website or contact email@example.com
