Autism Bedfordshire is the only voluntary organisation in the county that is specialised in supporting children and adults with autism. Autism Bedfordshire has an established adult services team that seeks to develop and advocate for services for adults with Asperger’s Syndrome or high functioning autism who are at risk of social isolation. We have continued to grow and adapt to ever changing needs, yet our vision has remained the same: to empower adults with autism across Bedfordshire.
Our employment support is designed for adults with high functioning autism or Asperger’s syndrome who are looking to enter the employment market within the next 18 months. The programme is designed to fit around the individual’s strengths, needs and aspirations to ensure every person who enters the programme is not only closer to the job market but more confident and independent when they leave it.
