Luke Aylward recorded 19/01/2022

Luke Aylward is the Communications and Network Officer and Autism Information Officer for The Advonet Group, a Leeds-based advocacy charity. He has worked with them for over five-and-a-half years. He is autistic and has, like many others, spent the majority of the pandemic working from home.

Luke produced resources to help people manage during the pandemic. In the past year or two, Luke has put together self-advocacy tools and planners to help people have their voice heard and their rights upheld, as well as setting out a new routine to adjust to the 'new normal'.

We discuss the autism employment gap (only one in six autistic adults are in full-time paid roles), the challenges of being a Comms lead for a third sector group and keeping abreast of changes in lockdown rules as well as getting used to a different commute as lockdown eased.
