The Long Game provides life-changing support and training, as well as employment opportunities, to autistic graduates and students in higher education.
Our peer-led approach provides autistic students and graduates with a platform to share their experiences, as well as opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and experience they need to thrive within the workplace
At The Long Game events, which are supported by Sheffield Hallam University, autistic graduates share their lived experiences, knowledge and key strategies they have needed to succeed in their careers. Our attendees leave inspired and confident, ready to follow any career path they choose.
There is no substitute for real experience and The Long Game provides a range of paid employment opportunities. These are a great opportunity to develop further skills and experience to use for CVs and in employment after graduation. Check out the current vacancies on our latest information page and social media.
“I’m a person, not a stereotype”
We know history shows that community cohesion is key in making positive and long -lasting change. At The Long Game we are building a community focused on challenging the idea that all autistic people are disabled.
Did you know that the manual used to diagnose autism as a disability was used to diagnose homosexuality as a mental illness? The LGBTQ+ community fought hard to challenge societal and cultural beliefs, reduce stigma, and promote acceptance and positivity. This has led to homosexuality being removed from The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. We would like to see society accept that autism is often nothing more than a natural difference.
