Some Assert services are still paused and others are running differently. Please see our dedicated current services page by clicking on the black button below. This provides up to date information on current services, while we are still having to operate differently to keep everyone safe. Please contact the relevant member of staff directly for any additional information. We are incredibly happy and excited to be able to start to function more fully again.

Autism is a lifelong condition that affects how a person makes sense of the world, processes information and relates to and communicates with others.

It is a hidden condition which means that you can’t tell if someone is autistic from their outward appearance. Autistic people often have above average intelligence and the condition is known as a ‘spectrum condition’ as it affects people in different ways and to varying degrees.

Many individuals with the condition reach adulthood without a diagnosis or their needs being met as autism does not fit neatly into any category of Statutory Service Provision.

Assert aims to:

Support autisic adults and their parents, partners or carers by providing advice, information, resources, education, social inclusion, volunteering opportunities and support to improve well-being and reduce isolation.

We also seek to raise awareness of the condition, including the many positive aspects.

Assert is a member-led organisation; both individuals and organisations can become members of Assert and support the work that we undertake.
