Who we are raising money for

Autism Together is one of the country’s leading providers of care and support to people with autism and are committed to delivering the best autism support available. As autism affects people in many different ways our approach is based on understanding each individual with this complex condition and to providing each with the structure to live life to the full, based on their personal needs and aspirations.

This philosophy is reflected in the range of services we offer.

We offer registered residential care in a wide variety of different types of housing across Wirral and beyond.

Based in several locations in the Wirral our Community and Vocational Services, ranging from the arts to horticulture, are person-centred and offer meaningful, realistic and achievable training, on the job work experience and valuable life skills in a safe environment.

As we know how stressful, frightening and overwhelming it can be for a family when a child is diagnosed with autism our Children and Family Support service provides information and advice to families with a child with autism. We offer a free training and a range of activities for all family members.

Being able to take a break is vital to both the person with an autistic spectrum condition and their family. So, operating out of our new purpose built, short stay facility, The Ferns, we are able to offer a range support from overnight stays, emergency breaks to full holiday support.

 

By taking just a short break, families can recharge their batteries ready to continue the important role they play every day in supporting the individual person with autism.

So few people with autism find employment despite being extremely good at many types of work so our Step into Work programme reaches out to adults with Asperger’s Syndrome with a specifically designed course of training and work experience, we also work closely with employers to raise awareness and understanding.

All of this, naturally, costs money and that is why we need you to help us make a real difference to the lives of people with autism.
