Welcome to The Maples. Situated at Tokers Green, Reading, The Maples is a centre for the support and development of people with autism. We provide accommodation and support for adults, aged 18+, who are on the autism spectrum or show behaviours that indicate autism. We also support people with epilepsy, and individuals with complex needs who might challenge alternative services. Staff are trained to help service users achieve their aspirations and enjoy a high quality of life, and we respect each person's right to individual choice, dignity, independence and fulfilment. The Maples is a service within The Disabilities Trust's network of services.
