Janine will be presenting the draft Labour Party Autism and Neurodiversity Manifesto at this briefing event at Parliament hosted by John McDonnell MP. Other members of the steering group which put the manifesto together will be on hand to answer questions.
Autistic people face discrimination and prejudice in a society which expects us to understand and fit in with social rules that are not of our making. Autistic people are also part of the disabled people's fightback. This section includes my work providing 'Autism in the workplace' training and information for trade union representatives, plus campaign news, and personal and political observations.
This course is open to all PCS reps and members who have already attended the Stage 1 course. Please look out for your invitation or contact the regional officer to register.
This course is for PCS members who have already attended the two-day Stage 1 training.
If you are a PCS member and would like to come on this course, please contact your branch or regional office.
Join us for a festive celebration as Autism East Midlands hosts its first ever Christmas Fayre. Autism East Midlands 2018 Christmas Fayre will not only allow everyone to come together for some Christmas cheer, but it will also see the closing of Autism East Midlands 50th Anniversary Celebrations.
Janine will be tutoring this two-day, Stage 1 Neurodiversity in the Workplace training course for PCS trade union reps and members.

You sit me on a chair that hurts
In a classroom full of noise and light
You put a pen in my wrong hand
And tell me that I have to write
You speak in terms that don't make sense
You write in symbols I can't see
You talk to everyone at once
You talk to everyone but me
Janine will be speaking about rights at work and performing some poetry at this celebration of autisticness!
