Our ServicesAutism Voice UK is involved in a number of services to reach it goals.
Our regular community outreach activities to faith groups, community groups in Lambeth and Southwark to educate communities about autism related stigma and discrimination in particularly the BAME community and how to break down barriers associated with them.
Our mentors provides confidential support on a range of practical and emotional issues with an aim of helping them identify and strategize plans to help in their personal development. Our mentors help autistic adults enhance their social and communication skills, pursue their hobbies and interests and be someone they can speak to.
Our emotional support volunteers/key workers provide free information, advice and support to autistic adults, parents/carers, and professionals. This service also includes 1:1 support and outreach to annual school reviews for autistic children, help with applying for EHCP and other social benefits, home visitations and meetings with social and other services involved with the family.
Social Club For Young Adults
This social club helps participants to work on social situations that they may be finding difficult. It includes indoor games, current affairs, music, dance, food making, baking, trips out and speakers.
The aim of our training is to educate all working with children on what Autism is, how to identify, care and development management plan of an autistic child.
In the UK, many parents lack the knowledge on how to care for their autistic child. For this reason, these children are normally sent for fostering or to child care home. At Autism Voice, we believe parents need to be trained on how to care and support their Autistic children’s development towards them becoming independent adult. This training is offered to families; parents and carers.
Research and Advocacy
Autism Voice understands the importance of research in extending and expanding our areas and interests of work. Therefore, we will be collating data from the work we do with our beneficiaries. This report will be published yearly in our Annual General Meeting.
We understand that what needs to change is not the families we support but the system and society they are trapped within. We intend to change this by advocating for a change to the legal and welfare system, lobbying for policies protecting Autistic children and adults in the community. We intend to lobby for cultural and ethnic sensitive ASD-related policies.
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.
This is a regular meeting of a safe and secured network of people directly affected by autism in the community to rely on each other for support and development. The session provides regular support, knowledge and experience sharing that inspires and empowers people with ASC, those working with them as well as family members.
