Propeller

Propeller is a 2 year programme supported by the Big Lottery Fund which enables us to offer bespoke Autism specific internship opportunities, monthly social & networking events and digital surgeries. 

Propeller is a new initiative to support autistic adults to access and thrive in the digital and creative industries. The programme includes:

  • Social and networking events with guest autistic speakers who work in digital and creative industries
  • Digital surgeries run by BOM Fellow Ben Neal. These are pre booked sessions tailored to individual interests ranging from developing programming skills, using social media or web designing. To book digital surgery sessions please complete this booking form.
  • Internships are designed in collaboration with each intern to fill gaps in terms of their skills, experience and individual needs in order to gain pragmatic strategies and transferrable skills for working in neurotypical work places.

We are working with WebWorks, an autistic-led initiative that mentors and supports autistic artists and develops autism-led projects.
