our mission

To provide high quality facilities which are based on ethical and inspiring opportunities for children and young people with Autism.

To expand our existing, Pilot Summer Activity Scheme (established for one month in Aug 2015) - which provides a structured  environment and activities     during the long school break, run by staff who are trained in Autism approaches.

 Develop a small residential 'home In society " for young people of 21 years old to support the transition from Child to Adult - and from Family Home to         greater independence. With this scheme we aim to include a respite care facility.

To provide a 24 hour service which provides Day  Activities  according to individual interests and skills.

To include  Families and Individuals in development of Person Centered plans and Approaches.
