Autism and leisure pursuits: families access cultural heritage

This summer, the Orange Foundation and the Fondation Culturespaces will once again be encouraging the families of children and teenagers with autism to bring them to visit six major cultural sites across France. A made-to-measure formula to combat isolation, offer leisure time and make our national heritage accessible to all.

Find out and plan on

The programme provides a suitable route through the site with fully briefed personnel, a guide and a made-to-measure game book. It is free-of-charge for specialist organisations and families (up to 2 adults and 2 children), on presentation of evidence of disability. All the information needed to prepare a visit is available to download at:

Relaxation for all the family, for all families

For 25 years, the Orange Foundation has been committed to the cause of autism. A commitment illustrated by more than 2,500 projects to help people with autism and their families. A combat on multiple fronts: helping with training and information, financing research, developing the use of digital technology for learning…but also improving the quality of life in institutions, leisure and relaxation activities. A range of activities to open up to others and the world.
