Hampshire Autistic – Ambassador
Autism Hampshire offers direct services to over 100 adults on the autism spectrum as well as providing community-based support to hundreds more. All our service users are taught and cared for in very homely surroundings by over 200 autism-specific trained staff. Development of our services is a priority as the need for services vastly outweigh those that we are currently able to offer. At this time, it is estimated that more than 18,000 people are affected by autism in Hampshire alone. However, in order to develop our range of services and support, Autism Hampshire greatly depends on donated income.
