What we do
Our help is varied and far reaching. Our services are available to anyone who needs it - people with autism and associated difficulties, families and professionals. Anyone affected by autism can rely on us for support.
We provide three main areas of support:
Portfield School, a non-maintained specialist school based in Christchurch, Dorset, was founded in 1971 by parents of children with autism. Managed by Autism Wessex, the school supports children and young people with autism and associated difficulties aged 3-19.
Whether you’re looking for information on diagnosis, benefits, education or everyday life, our Community Connection Service offers information on different topics related to autism. We’ll connect you to services in the community, which meet your needs.
Our Community Support and Residential Services offer a range of personalised social care services for people with autism and associated difficulties.
