About us

We are committed to enabling service users to function independently, while developing their lives with dignity and respect. Our range of person-centred services is designed to meet individual needs - from small community- based registered residential housing projects to long-term care and support in purpose-built residential centres.

Autism is a complex disability and no two people have the same needs. Our detailed assessment procedure is designed by experts to determine the level of support needed by each individual. We are committed to finding new ways of understanding the views of those who have communication difficulties and tailor our communication methods to best meet the needs of that person.

Our person-centred approach places service users at the heart of everything we do. We recognise that people with autistic spectrum disorders often behave in ways which challenge traditional service provision.
