What We Do?
Autism Voice UK is involved in a number of services to reach it goals.
Emotional support – Our emotional support volunteers/key workers offer advice about the services available to autistic people and their families, help families identify their pressing needs and sign post them to the appropriate authorities or charities.
Mentorship – Our mentorship program provides confidential support to Autistic Adults on a range of practical and emotional issues with an aim of helping them identify and strategize plans to help in their personal development.
Social and Cultural Club – In partnership with the West Indian Association of Service Personnel we provide a once a week social and cultural club for autistic young adults. The aim is to inspire and empower them with a sense of cultural identity, instil self-belief and boost their confidence.
