Initial referrals to our community, residential or educational services can be made by health, social care or educational professionals. We also work with parents and guardians. We use a combination of methods to assess each individual's needs, including reports from professionals, having meetings with the service user and their family and talking to previous service providers.

Our therapeutic team then provides a detailed assessment of each individual's autism profile, behaviour and support needs. Subject to stakeholder agreement and funding confirmation, the service user will be offered accommodation in the most appropriate service. The assessment will form the basis of the positive behaviour support plan for that individual.

We provides a range of care and support services to both adults and children with autism. For referrals and further information, please contact:
