Survey request

Help us shape the future of autism research in Aotearoa

Autistic co-led research priorities for Aotearoa New Zealand: A partnership with Autistic people, families and whānau, service and support providers and researchers.

We want to identify the priorities for future autism research in Aotearoa New Zealand. Our research team includes Autistic and non-autistic researchers. We all believe that future autism research should be informed by Autistic individuals, and the autism community.

Have your say! Take part in a survey that takes about 25 minutes for most people to complete.

The survey is open to Autistic individuals, parents, carers, family and whānau, professionals, and researchers.

Oxfam Trailwalker (March 26 – 27) is the ultimate team challenge event that changes lives one step at a time. We simply could not run Oxfam Trailwalker without the help of our awesome volunteers.

By volunteering at Oxfam Trailwalker, your contribution helps raise funds for Oxfam’s programmes that keep girls in school, improve water and sanitation and create a just and sustainable world, now and for future generations.

You will be making a difference, helping out at Oxfam Aotearoa’s biggest fundraising event, supporting more than 1,200 participants to reach the finish line. At the same time, you’ll meet new people, enjoy the beauty of the Taranaki region and be part of the team that is behind this huge outdoor event!
