Yesterday, Bella Tommey met David Cameron at 10 Downing Street and told him about her new campaign ‘Give Autism a Chance’. He showed enthusiasm for the project and has asked Bella to forward more information to him about her hopes for people with autism.
‘’Give Autism a Chance’ is Bella’s ‘Battlefront’ campaign, a youth project working in affiliation with Channel 4. At such an early stage in her campaign Bella has already gained a wealth of support from over 1,500 Facebook fans, influential businessmen and women, and now from the Prime Minister himself!
Bella says, ‘I was so pleased to get such strong support from David Cameron. As Prime Minister he has the power to really implement a change in the way people with autism are viewed in the workplace. I couldn’t have hoped for support from a more influential person.’
Bella aims to show that people with autism can put something back into society by starting a pop-up café run entirely by people with autism. She was inspired by her brother Billy, who was diagnosed with autism aged 3, and intends to prove that people like Billy can work in a supported environment.
