Service description:

En-Fold is a post-diagnostic support service for families affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) provides early intervention support following a diagnosis. They aim to reduce isolation and ensure families access the right support for their child.

En-Fold can act as ‘system navigators’ to ensure families get better support (with better communication and joined-up working between agencies). Their services include emotional support, education, one-to-one support (with strategies tailored to each family’s needs), DLA support, and effective signposting to other organisations.

En-Fold is a registered charity (no. 1180998).

Enfold were commissioned by the All Age Autism Strategy group to build a website to provide local autism support and online resources. See link above.
