Aubilities About Image | Making the invisible, visible

Neurodivergent people are fantastically unique, with their own abilities and superpowers. Supported in the right way, these abilities can relish in brilliance or even border genius, but unsupported, their abilities can fail to shine.

Neurodiversity affects an estimated 1 in 7 people, with the rates of diagnosis on the rise. However, neurodivergent people are still under-represented in employment. Research tells us many face barriers in employers’ understanding of neurodiversity and are not fully supported in the workplace. This means neurodivergent people are less likely to apply to open positions and employers are missing out on reaching a truly diverse workforce and benefitting from the value of neurodivergent and specialist thinking.


Globally, many people with disabilities, including non-visible disabilities, are under-represented in the workforce, more so than any other disability group.

It is in this truth that Aubilities was born

Aubilities stands for ‘All Abilities’, putting 'u' in the centre. We advocate for the ‘neurodivergent network’ made up of neurodivergent individuals, allies, parents and carers.

Through our services we aim to improve the representation of neurodivergent people in the workforce, while creating value for organisations and helping the neurodivergent community in finding meaningful and supported employment.

Supporting Charities

Whilst we’re committed to advocating the topic of neurodiversity within organisations and educational settings, our services can only extend so far. To enable more change and go beyond acceptance to help neurodivergent people thrive in today’s societal world, we’ve teamed up with “Resources for Autism”, a charity devoted to helping autistic people and their families in a range of specialist services, preparing them for everyday life.
