About Us

All the tools and hands-on support your teams need to embrace and manage neurodiversity in the workplace.

Our Mission

The Safe Space’s mission is simple. We want everyone to have access to meaningful, sustainable careers. For many neurodivergent people today this unfortunately is not their reality and that is what we’re here to change .

We are dedicated to providing expert advice and resources to individuals and organisations looking to support a neurodiverse workplace. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to reach their highest potential, regardless of their neurological profile.

We want to create a world in which every neurodivergent individual has access to the same opportunities for meaningful and sustainable careers. We strive to break down the barriers and stigmas that prevent our communities from reaching their professional potential. Through education, collaboration, and advocacy, our goal is to create an inclusive and equitable environment that allows every person to pursue their dreams and reach their highest potential. Together, we can build a better, safer future for all of us.

Meet our Founder

Building neuroinclusive workplaces for all

I am simply a Mac that had been told they were a Windows.

April, our Founder, is a late-diagnosed autistic inattentive-ADHD woman. She slipped through the cracks of a diagnosis when she was younger even though she exhibited many traits and had other family members with autism and ADHD.

April’s career started out rocky. Between the ages of 18 and 21 she had 6 different jobs, and dropped out of university. She was struggling with things such as only being allowed to take a break at specific times, she struggled to connect socially with her colleagues and would get frustrated at office favouritism. It wasn’t until she found a company that naturally provided a more relaxed and equitable environment that April began to thrive.

April went on to become a multi-award winning product and engineering leader in the tech industry.

April’s experience with burnout led to her receiving her Autism and ADHD diagnoses, and it was during this period that she realised just how much would have to change for her to continue thriving in her career, and just how little organisations knew about neurodiversity.

This led to her creating The Safe Space Collective, an organisation dedicated to providing a non-judgmental safe place for employers to learn about neurodiversity, and how to best support it in the workplace.
