Our flexible outreach service provided across London, including Croydon helps autistic adults to take part in activities outside their home, build their confidence and become more independent in all aspects of life. For example, we can help people to take part in their favourite sport or attend a college course. We offer social programmes which give autistic adults opportunities to meet and socialise with other people with autism.

His programme is helping him towards his goal of employment. It also includes items to encourage independent living skills and gives him some sporting outlet as well.
Our staff have a range of specialisms and knowledge so we can offer the right support to each person with autism and help them to fulfil their needs and wishes. All our staff receive autism-specific training, which they build upon throughout their career.
Our expertise and experience enable us to communicate effectively with people with autism so that they can express what they want and need.
We work closely with each person to create their own individual support plan and put it into practice. We see it as vital that the the person with autism is at the centre of our planning process so that they have every opportunity to develop and thrive. We also make sure that family, carers, friends and staff are fully involved in the planning process.
