Autistes Sans Frontières, the national body coordinating around thirty associations for parents with autistic children, and created in 2004, has a dual objective: to promote educational and behavioural therapies and to protect the inclusion of autistic children in mainstream education. In order to contribute to its development and provide financial support to its projects, the Crédit Agricole group and its three subsidiaries with the largest disabled work force, attended the 2019 gala: CA Consumer Finance, CACEIS and LCL.

The event was also attended by Sophie Cluzel, Minister attached to the Prime Minister with responsibility for the disabled, Member of Parliament Cédric Villani along with a number of experts in issues associated with the autism spectrum and care.

CA Consumer Finance appears once again the leader in the field, with a disabled work force of 6.27%. CACEIS followed, with 4.71% and then LCL with 4.52 % of overall employment levels.

An excellent illustration of CA Consumer Finance CSE practices, of our commitment in the social sphere and of how established we are within the Group.
