More about Autism Plus


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

We were founded 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; today Thorne House continues to be one of our main operating sites.

Over the quarter of a century that the charity has operated we have achieved a great deal. We now provide support across the North of England. We support 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. In every part of our service we support people to take more control over their lives.
