Our Vision

“To give every young autistic person the opportunity to access social activities”

 

What We Do

The A List is a national online platform enabling young autistic people and their families to search and book ‘autism-friendly’ activities all around Australia, including peer support groups and community options.

How The A List Works

Families and individuals can search for, and in some cases book and pay for social activities or be directed to an organisation’s website to find out more.

Who Created The A List?

Bianca and Nicole, founders of The A List and partners at MyCareSpaceMeet Bianca Shapiro and Nicole Gamerov from MyCareSpace and Co-Founders of The A list.

MyCareSpace was founded by Nicole in 2017 and Bianca joined her as a partner, sharing her vision and passion.

MyCareSpace is a free community service connecting autistic people and their families, Support Coordinators and LACs with services that meet their unique needs, in their local area.

Every day the MyCareSpace Connections Team received calls from autistic people and their families, looking for social options. Often there were no options on offer. The duo decided to do something about it!

MyCareSpace knew they could not do this alone. So they approached, Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) who loved their idea and together with Autism Community Network (ACN) and Autism Aspergers Advocacy Australia (A4), they were awarded an NDIS ILC (Information, Linkages and Capacity Building) Grant from the Australian Government Department of Social Services in 2019.
