Local authorities have an important role to play in the provision of services for children, young people and adults with autism, learning difficulties and complex needs, and we’re proud of the strong partnerships we’ve built with teams across the UK.
We work alongside our local authority colleagues to do the very best for each individual, providing a wide range of services that strengthen provision across the community and helping those with autism benefit from the learning and development opportunities they deserve.
Supporting Local Communities
We share our skills and expertise to benefit not only the people we directly educate and care for, but also those in the wider communities in which we operate. Beyond the services we provide, we’re committed to adding value for our stakeholders through initiatives such as:
Hosting autism awareness sessions at local mainstream schools to educate teaching staff and local authority colleagues as well as parents and carers.
Circulating regular help sheets offering advice to parents, carers and local authorities on various subjects relating to autism, and social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
Running local events such as summer festivals and open days, demonstrating our passion and commitment to integrating with the local community and raising awareness.
Supporting neighbouring schools – for example, through our sponsorship of Kids Safe packs, which educate and advise children to stay mindful and safe through a range of games and activities.
Raising money for local and national charities throughout the year to benefit those in need.
Organising an annual donation of Christmas gifts to local children’s hospitals.
Collaborating with local businesses to enhance the life experiences of those we support.
Recognising people who are making a real difference, as well as celebrating the achievements of individuals with autism and social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
