Atrip: the neurodiverse network

For those of us with family and friends who are neurodiverse, we know that it can be a challenge to find services which understand their needs. Having to make reasonable adjustments is written in law, yet so often the service received is below par. The people behind Atrip recognised this and have created a ‘Trip Advisor’ style website.

Scoping out restaurants or hotels before booking a trip or day out can be difficult. Many of us ask for recommendations from other people on Facebook, but now having a one-stop shop should make that process easier.

The listings are split into:

  • Food and drink
  • Health
  • Organisations
  • Sleep (accommodation)
  • Things to do
  • Travel

You can search by any location in the world and there is a map with pins you can click on.

Here is an example of a venue which can be reviewed:

Here is an example of a review: was founded by parents Paul and Niki, whose son Archie was diagnosed with autism at the age of four. Several friends, including actor Richard Mylan, have climbed on board to help with building the website and social media.

Paul said: “We’ve always travelled and having a neurodiverse child, we were stunned that for such a big autistic community there was nothing really out there. We couldn’t find anything on the web that catered specifically for autistic people. A place to review, recommend and share places that suit our community, so Atrip.World was born!”

“We were originally planning to launch Atrip in March this year, but with the Covid-19 pandemic, life was put on hold. It was interesting to see how people would cope in a world that’s very familiar to the neurodiverse community: self-isolation, social distancing, lack of contact and communication.”

“We are a neurodiverse population of over 4 million in the UK. The numbers are huge and there is a wealth of knowledge we can all share to help our wonderful autistic community.”

“It’s a free to use service and the idea is we all have pearls of knowledge in our local area – places to see, things to do, somewhere to grab a bite to eat that are all autism friendly and sensory aware. The list is endless. So if you know of something suitable, jump on board and start listing. All it costs is one minute of your own time. A hub to share, review, and recommend good vibes in the Atrip World!”

“We’d love to use this opportunity to change the road map for our children and the neurodiverse community.”
