We are a Community Interest Organisation regulated by the Community Interest Board and we pay tax just like you! We are an organisation that has the community at it's heart. Any profits we make from the products/services we provide are used to benefit the community as set out in our Constitution. We are proud to be a CIC Non-Profit. The model has actually been in existence since 2005 and was widely tipped to replace the original model of charity (until the propaganda machine kicked in courtesy of the established charities).
Nothing has changed in the big charitys' way of operating since the very first ever poorhouses/workhouses... they are just dressed differently - campaigns through your letterbox, email inbox or on your tv..... fictitious stories acted out with expensive ads by paid actors (read the small print of your donation confirmation). There isn't time or space here to explain it all, but there is a blog about it on our Members Only Facebook Page.... all you have to do is join Good Cause Online to be granted access.
In 2005 the large charities spent huge sums of money indirectly slandering the new system they publicly supported, saying to the general public that if an organisation doesn't have a registered charity number, it cannot be trusted. Ironically the absolute opposite is the truth.
You can see videos of Dr. David Alexander (Good Cause Online Founder) and Sarah Mason's opinions on the sector, plus many more who are coming to the realisation that they have had us conned for years.
This stops when the public say it does... they are already government funded (our tax), but they ask for more in expensive TV ads and then they spend it on exec salaries and bonuses neatly hidden by expensive accountants.
Sarah has helped to deliver more than 30 AAC Devices nationally since she began Autism Raffle!
AUGMENTATIVE ALTERNATIVE COMMUNICATION DEVICES (AAC)
YOU CAN GIVE THE GIFT OF WORDS
WHAT IS AN AUGMENTATIVE ALTERNATIVE COMMUNICATION (AAC) DEVICE?
An augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device, is a tablet or laptop that helps many non verbal autistic people with a speech or language impairment to communicate. The term AAC device is often used interchangeably with terms like speech-generating device (SGD) or assistive communication device or simply communication device. AAC devices help users to communicate through a combination of words, sentences, and images that the device then “says out loud.” Additionally, users can also communicate by typing or drawing, sharing pictures and videos, or even repeating words they hear out loud. They are very popular with young people who are more open to using something like a device than they would be to a human being. They are not the entire solution in many cases but can often play a vital part of a successful development strategy. We had massive success and amazing feedback after supplying the Tobi Dynavox brand to more than 2450 young adults with speech and communication difficulties from a wide spectrum of communication issues.
We continue to deliver FREE services to autistic people and their families, because the public support our work.

Proven. The Benefits of AAC Devices
In 2019 we supplied almost 2500 of the devices, FACT CHECKED✅ totally free to nonverbal autistic children and young adults with exceptional results and amazing feedback. The verdict was that these devices were a resounding success and so we decided to try to double the amount we give away in 2022!
CHANGING LIVES AND FUTURES EVERY DAY BECAUSE OF YOU, OUR MEMBERS.
AAC devices also provide therapeutic benefits. Simply using a device has been shown to improve language skills and many individuals experience an increase in verbal speech. AAC devices also offer activities, videos, and quizzes that can improve speech and cognition.
Finally, AAC devices are beneficial to the user’s caregiver and family members since it allows the user to be more independent and reduces the burden on others.
The NHS and the government/National Autistic Society DO NOT issue these devices for free. They are expensive of course, but they are effective and so it has become our goal to ensure that every young person who wants to try to improve their life by using AAC should be given the opportunity.
Hundreds of non verbal autistic young people are receiving these devices regularly. Because of our members. Without them we cannot do what we do.

Our Autism Raffle is Groundbreaking - Digitally Administrated
Our system will be copied by many. We welcome that. Because it is transparent, it increases sales, donations and makes life easier for the unbelievable raffle sales team led by Sarah! The system shows the public every step via links sent to their phone, which they can watch or unsubscribe from with one tap!
The whole focus of the raffle sales drive has been to raise money to buy AAC Devices for individuals one by one, raffle by raffle in the respective areas. But importantly we are raising awareness as we go and telling people about what we do, pointing them towards our website. The eventual goal is to increase the Good Cause Club membership because of the long-term revenue that generates for UK Autistic. It frees us up from fundraising meaning we can increase the volume of services offered and grow from there.
