This month, we decided to embark upon our most ambitious undertaking to date: running – to our knowledge – the world’s first hackathon to be run by a Lions Club! Being an autistic-themed Lions Club, it was only fitting that our hackathon had an autistic theme. Equally fitting was the name we gave our little […]
The Autism Lions Movement continues to grow apace, all around the world! We were honoured to have members of the Lefkoşa Başkent Lions Kulübü (Nicosia Capital Lions Club, in Turkish) based on the island of Cyprus, attend our meeting this month! Hoş geldiniz!

Here at SACLC, we like to promote the idea of Autistic Acceptance as opposed to “autism awareness”, and naturally, as a dedicated Lions Club, we promote Autistic Acceptance year-round, not just in any particular month, compared to what we have done in the past. Nevertheless, an opportunity for us to promote our club as well […]
Our honoured guest at our meeting this month was Charif Kaiss, Founder and President of the not-for-profit organisation Crush Kancer with a Smile, who gave a moving and inspiring talk on conquering your fears and overcoming adversity… all the way from Lebanon! Whilst this is certainly a diversion from our usual autistic-themed programme of talks […]
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 serve
Becoming a LION
Becoming a Lion is simple. 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 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.
