An autism alert card can enable other people to help you if you are in difficulties.
Autism alert cards will be issued free of charge to people aged over 10 years on the autism spectrum, which includes Asperger syndrome, who are residents in Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. Replacement cards cost £1.
The credit card-sized autism alert card should be carried at all times and be shown if you find
yourself in a situation where you need help or need to give an explanation. It will also assist the police and other emergency services to identify that they are dealing with someone on the autism spectrum, which includes Asperger syndrome.
This initiative has been funded and supported by Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset Council and Dorset Police.
