Service update

The waiting list for registration with Assert is currently closed. Due to staff shortages and the demands on all our services, we have taken the difficult decision close our waiting list until further notice.

If you are already on the list, your name will remain on it, and you will be contacted once an Autism Support Advisor is in post and an appointment is available. If you require signposting to other services in the meantime, please contact us.

New enquiries about registration will not be added to the waiting list. Kindly note that Assert accepts self-referrals only and cannot accept or respond to referrals from professionals, carers or family members.

Any updates about the re-opening of our waitlist will be published on this website. We regret that we cannot respond to individual queries about this.
