The Charities Involved
While there is no cure for autism, we believe that with appropriate education, support or care and by making the world an easier place to understand, the impact of autism can be reduced and people with autism can be active citizens, enjoying maximum independence and a good quality of life. Autism Wessex is the regional charity providing high quality specialist services for adults and children affected by autism and associated difficulties throughout Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset.
With three main areas of activity, Autism Wessex provides: Portfield School for education, residential and respite services; Community Wessex for social care services; and a range of advocacy and advice services.
Established in 1968 by a group of parents, Scottish Autism is an organisation dedicated to enriching the lives of people with autism. We are now the largest provider of autism-specific services in Scotland and a leading authority and advocate for good autism practice. We exist to help those diagnosed with autism to lead full and enriched lives, and also seek to share knowledge and expertise with parents, carers and other professionals, in order to support best care and support for people with autism.
With over 800 staff working across Scotland, we offer a large range of services for people with autism including education, day and vocational opportunities, supported living, outreach, respite and specialist transition support. Our mission is to enable people living with autism in Scotland through the whole life journey.
North East Autism Society is a registered charity with over 30 years’ experience of providing support for those affected by autism. Our services include education for children aged 3-19, post-19 education and social/vocational training, along with supported and open employment opportunities for adults. We provide year-round residential placements and an ever-increasing range of community services across the region for people of all ages.
We recognise that everyone is unique and that autism affects each person uniquely. Our staff pay close attention to detail, in order to develop a person-centred plan which is specifically tailored to enable them to achieve, grow in confidence and live life to the full.
