For almost 40 years we’ve led the way in providing autism-specific care and education for children, young people and adults across the North-east of England.

Recognised for our innovation and excellence, everything we do stems from an unswerving belief in providing bespoke person-centred support. It’s at the heart of who we are to recognise the uniqueness of every human being, and to understand that no two autistic people, or in fact any humans within an understanding of neurodiversity, will have the same needs or wants.

We passionately believe that autistic children and adults have significant skills and strengths, which can be developed throughout their lifetime.

Our approach aims to support individuals to participate in society as independent and valued citizens, enjoying equal rights and opportunities but also enriching the world around them.
