Our outreach service is for people on the autism spectrum who may need some support in day-to-day life, and with accessing services and the local community. The service is available in York and West, East and North Yorkshire.
All our staff receive autism-specific training and take a person-centred approach to their work, that is, they put the person with autism and their needs and aspirations at the centre of the work they do.
One-to-one support may be offered to people:
- in supported living accommodation
- in a sheltered housing scheme
- in the family home
- in the community.
Individual packages will include:
- autism-specific, person-centred support
- support with goal-setting
- support with general issues relating to autism or Asperger syndrome
- strategies to keep safe
- support to maintain and develop new relationships with family and friends
- opportunities to go out and about in the community.
Individual packages can include:
- support to access the local community, for example going shopping; attending college or university; accessing health care and leisure facilities; and using public transport
- support with independent living and household management skills.
