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.

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.
