We offer both volunteer and paid specialist one to one support for anyone with a diagnosis of autism of any age.
All our staff and volunteers are autism trained.
Provision is usually for 2 – 3 hours a week, every week for up to six months and volunteers and staff will aim to engage with the community, going on local outings where possible, developing social networks and creating a positive relationship.
An initial home visit with a Reach Out Coordinator will assess how the service can be most useful.
There is likely to be a waiting list to access this.
The service is free for the volunteer befriending but if a higher level of support need is identified there will be a charge and this can either be met from private income or local authority personal budget allocations or a mix of these.
If you would like a place please fill in the referral form.
