Further Information

We believe that personalisation is an effective way to recognise and meet our clients’ needs. Autism commonly manifests as a tendency toward intense engagement with particular interests and we design our work with that in mind. For instance, if a person has a special interest in music, we can use this both to help build their confidence through performing and also use their taking part in these activities as a gateway to engage with our other services.

All elements of AchievAble and EmployAble are delivered by specialist tutors with vast experience of working with Autism and Learning Disabilities.

Service users are welcome to apply for elements of both programmes and programmes can be self-funded or service users can use Direct Payments or Personal Budgets.

To find out more about either service, please call Sarah on 0191 4560894.
