We provide specialist services for people with learning disabilities and autism.
Autism is a lifelong, developmental condition that affects the way a person communicates, interacts and processes information.
Around 1 in 100 people are living with autism. (700,000 in the UK alone).
People with autism may also have a learning disability but it can also affect people of average to high intellectual ability.
Some people on the autistic spectrum will have more subtle difficulties where others will have complex needs requiring more intensive support.
