We provide a range of services and support for individuals with autism and social communication difficulties.

Our services

Working in several care settings including residential, home care, supported living, respite and short stay breaks we can offer people with autism meaningful, realistic and achievable training, on the job work experience and valuable life skills and support children, young people and their families understand their autism rich futures.

Our services


We offer registered residential care to over 90 people in a wide variety of different types of housing across.


Our Community and Vocational Services offer fantastic opportunities for people with autism to develop essential skills and reach their full potential using our own specialist facilities or services based in the community.


For people who want to remain within their own existing homes, or would like help finding their own home we are also able to offer individual supported living packages.


Our Children & Family Services aim to provide support to all members of the family through our wide ranging services based at our Rainbow Resource Centre in Birkenhead.


We know only too well the importance for families who care for someone with autism to have a break. It allows families to do the ordinary things in life such as go out for meals or shopping.


The main barriers to employment for people with autism are difficulties with communication and social interaction. Many just do to understand the unwritten rules of work and what constitutes acceptable behaviour in the work place.



The results of our survey

Perpetrators of mate crime prey on the most vulnerable people in society and do so in the knowledge that these crimes often go unreported. It is morally reprehensible and they are cowards.


Over 16s with autism felt bullied or taken advantage of by someone they had thought was a friend.


Of over 16s felt lonely and left out.


16-25 yr olds have difficulty distinguishing friends from those who bully or abuse.

Help us develop an anti-mate crime campaign
