Sydney Autism Community Lions Club is dedicated to the advancement and empowerment of people on the autism spectrum.
We seek to serve our community by engaging in volunteer projects that will promote a culture of acceptance and enrichment.
Our goal is to produce outcomes that result in practical improvements in the lives of neurodivergent individuals and groups.
We respect and celebrate neurodiversity and value unique perspectives whilst acknowledging the amazing contributions that have been made to society by people on the autism spectrum.
We are an inclusive club and support network, and seek to provide an environment that promotes acceptance, support, friendship and connection for our members and community.

How you can help
Becoming a LION
The Sydney Autism Community Lions Club is a proud member of the largest worldwide fellowship of volunteer service clubs, Lions Clubs International.
Becoming a Lion is simple. Either you find a Lions Club that you wish to join, or a current member of a Club invites you to join, then you submit an application to join, then, once your application is approved by the members and you have paid the necessary dues, you are officially a Lion!
Before seeking to become a Lion, you should first decide whether you can afford a small amount of time to help our community.
There is a perception in some circles that service organisations such as Lions Clubs International require you to dedicate much of your leisure time to Lionism – THIS IS NOT SO. In Lions we stress that a member’s family and career come first and foremost. A Lion’s service comes sometime after these two important factors are satisfied. Of course any club would seek regular participation from its members but the decision to participate is always with the member.
Should you consider joining the Sydney Autism Community Lions Club please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our membership team is always pleased to speak to you about Lionism.
