About Us Our Vision What We Believe “Working together to inspire, support and equip people with autism and other examples of neurodiversity to fulfil their potential in life”. Our Core Values To help us achieve our mission statement we have four core values underpinning our practice: to have our learners and service users at the heart of the organisation to operate a fair, respectful and honest culture to strive for the highest quality to operate with integrity In practice, we believe that ‘excellence’ for an autism specific service stems from a total commitment to the individual. Every one of us is unique, with differing needs, wants and challenges - and autism affects each person uniquely. Several key beliefs underpin our work and inform the decisions that we value in planning services. Individuals with autism will continue to develop skills and strategies throughout their lives. As an organisation we can demonstrate positive outcomes for children, young people and adults with autism. Children and adults with autism have significant strengths and can use these to continue to learn and develop skills that enable them to participate in society as independent and valued citizens, enjoying equal rights and opportunities. We will further develop an eclectic and flexible approach utilising the unique personalised resources and approaches necessary to support the development of individual skills. Through working alongside children, young people and adults with autism we will empower them to contribute and be consulted realistically on every aspect of their lives. Consultation through listening to people who use the service and their representatives is key to effective and evolving services.
