More about Autism Plus


Autism Plus is a registered charity (charity number 518591) and is a company limited by guarantee.

We were founded over 30 years ago by a group of parents of adult children, all diagnosed with an autism spectrum condition. After reaching school leaving age they found there was no service to support their children through adulthood.

Coming together they worked tirelessly to establish a provision that met the needs of their children. The group was able to secure the use of a Victorian house, in the market town of Thorne, near Doncaster in South Yorkshire to provide residential support.

We now provide support across the North of England, supporting individuals who have autism, learning disabilities and mental health diagnoses. We feel very passionate and proud of the way Autism Plus has grown and supported people to achieve so many of their aspirations over the last three decades. 

Choice is at the heart of our vision. We believe that everyone, no matter what barriers they are facing should have the same opportunities as anyone else: the choice in where to live, who to live with, the chance to work or learn new skills, support to develop relationships and friendships and live fulfilling and rewarding lives.

Our philosophy - it is at the heart of everything we do.
