Children and Young People’s Service

Flexible breaks give children and young people affected by autism the opportunity to access some great activities. These activities take place after school and during most school holidays as well as occasional half-terms and weekends. Activities include youth clubs, weekend groups, and day-trips.

No referral is necessary to access the service. If a child wishes to attend one of the groups, fill out a Registration Form and send a one-page profile to Autism East Midlands.

Building Better Opportunities (BBO)

Autism East Midlands are working in partnership with Commsortia to deliver the Working Progress Project, which offers holistic support into work. The project is open to anyone who is aged 19+ and is out of work. However, it does focus on people who have additional barriers to work, such as those with disabilities, the over-50s, black and minority ethnic (BAME) groups, ex-offenders, and unpaid carers.

Autism East Midlands merged with Autism Concern on 1st January 2018. Autism East Midlands is a registered charity (no. 517954).
