Sponsorship Opportunities

We are pleased to announce our principle and assocuiate sponsor for this year's conference. We still have opportunities to sponsor the conference dinner, delegate bags and some of the Best Practice Awards. See our sponsorship brochure, attached below, for details or contact us if you are interesting in providing sponsorship for the conference.


Principle Sponsor

We are grateful for the generous support of our principal sponsor, Rangam Associates. Rangam is a minority-, woman-, and disability-owned workforce solutions company. Their philosophy of “Empathy Drives Innovation” influences everything they do. As one of the fastest-growing professional staffing agencies providing autism jobs, they specialise in attracting and retaining both neurotypical and neurodiverse talent globally for IT, Engineering, Scientific, Clinical, Healthcare, Administrative, Finance, and Business Professional sectors while integrating veterans and individuals with disabilities into the workforce.


Associate Sponsors

DPD’s Inspire programme is designed to give young people with disabilities and/or special educational needs the opportunities they deserve by providing a structured and supported work environment. Individuals who join DPD through Inspire have the opportunity to follow a clear progression path: Work Experience, Supported Internships and Inclusive Apprenticeships before achieving a substantive post. From the start of their journey, we work with individuals to understand their aspirations and personalities to determine where they will work best and match those with a role that considers their support needs.


Brain in Hand is a digital self-management support system for people who need help remembering things, making decisions, planning, or managing anxiety. It's not condition-specific, but is often used by people who are autistic or managing anxiety-related mental health challenges. Combining practical human support and digital self-management technology, Brain in Hand helps people live more independently.

Our system is approved by government departments and in use throughout health, social care and higher education settings across the UK.
